Squeeking bakes!

Does anyone else's bake squeek like crazy? Specially when the bakes and rotor gt hot. I replaced my pads not even 6 months ago whith the akebono performance bake pas. I had replace my rotors a year before that, with oem rotors. A few months were really good very little noise. Very little dust(the best thing about akebono) stopping power was slightly better hand oem.
After a few months they were Squeeking like crazy. Really bad, emberacing bad. I don't know what to do. I've been thinking of replacing rotors with either ebc brakes rotors or dba? Any one know other bands. I'm looking for low noise low dust. Don't drive my car all hay much, it's a daily. I am hard on my brakes thought. Help. Me out please. As for as brake pads I really like the akebono pads. I know hawks are more known but akebono are right up. There with he hawks. Any suggestions comment as greatly appreciated. Or even a fix that doesn't require changing pads or rotors.

Probably need to grease your pads. Search the forums for that subject. My car has the same issue I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet.

I have the V6, but had this problem.

I had a hard time with gm, had to call the head office to complain.

I finally managed to get all 4 rotors and brakes replaced free of charge.

I would definitely give them a call.

This seems to work for everyone who tries it:
