Thanks for the link, Waco. Interesting reading!

yea that looks much better but looks to be designed into the whole setup, not added to a completed caliper design....

Brilliant! Just put on the brakes from an old Camaro.

The car is obviously badly designed and manufactured, and the squeal is merely a symptom of larger problems that will inevitably result in your untimely death. Stop driving it immediately! I am a good samaritan and am willing to "dispose" of the car for your safety...

How is this a "better" solution? Guys we are heading in the wrong direction. I haven't been to the CTS-V forums but I would guess they aren't having this problem.

It looks like the caliper from the Porsche is from the Cayenne SUV not a 911 or even Cayman/Boxster. I have yet to see these balancers or weights as they are called on any other car wearing Brembos. There is a guy on here who installed the 6 piston caliper from Brembo.....no weights or squealing.I am no engineer but something just doesn't add up. My guess is there is something happening with the Camaro specifically.

your right... your not an engineer...



be rest assured ladies and gents, if those dampeners didn't need to be on there; they would not be.


say what you want about GM's financial and executive team... but their engineers dont waste time engineering something and then validating it unless it's needed.


it's a necessity, if you dont like it... feel free to find a better solution that matches a 100k mile warrenty.



//end rant.

Mine just started the slow roll squeel and I have to tell you I don't care how ugly they are if they work... Nothing sux more than rolling along in a nice sounding rumble Camaro, looking shiney and fine and then touch the brakes and SQUEEEEEEEEEELLLLL....

If it stops the squeaking who really cares? If anybody asks what they are, just tell them they contain high-torque miniature electric motors that contact the inside of the wheel and activate at speeds over 50 mph to increase fuel economy.

The problem is it doesn't stop squeaking on all the cars... brake weights, then roller skates.. how about replace the whole caliper? and stop putting band-aids on it.

I do see that these are part of the new pad assemblies from the factory, so changing to any other available pad will likely NOT have these added weights.
DO NOT PUT ANY TYPE OF LUBE ON YOUR BRAKES!
