brakes squeaking

Hey guys hopefully someone can help me out. My brakes have been squeaking for a while now. First thing that i done was check the pads. Turns out they were almost gone. So i bought some hawk ceramic pads. I replaced them but the squeaking was still there.
At this time i could only hear the front brakes . So i bought new rotors and still same problem. Please help. It's so embarrassing at every red light or stop sign

Proper break in is crucial for quiet pads.

Try going over the rotors with some sand paper to clean them up and then follow the bedding process as best you can.

  4. Allow 15 minutes for brake system to cool down.
  5. After step 4 your new pads are ready for use.

Another thing to check is if there may be a small piece of road debris caught in the brake pad.

Also, give this thread a read
