Default New brakes squeal

Hello all:

I bought PowerSports brakes for my wife's 2013 Altima from BrakeLabs. I installed them myself and everything seems to work great.

The only problem is that they squeal fairly loudly when cold, and even a little when warm.

I know sometimes high-performance brakes can squeal, but is this normal for these brakes? Part numbers: Pads: 10-0815-00, 10-0905-00. Rotors: 600-67050, 600-67057.

If it's normal, would it help to put some of that felt or special anti squeal compound between the pads and calipers or something similar?

If not, what should I look for?

Thanks!

I use a light coating of copperslip to lube the back of the pads and shims and abutment clips; make sure you clean them off with a wire brush if new clips didn't come with the pads. It's usually best to install new pad hardware. Also, if the rotors aren't new, they should be resurfaced or at least de-glazed.

Did you seat them?
Especially for ceramics they need to get hot and be seated to be quiet end perform well.
Likely they are glazed over.
If it persists you will have to remove them and resand the brake material lightly

Default Brake pads

What condition are the rotors? If they are good, take the pads you bought and throw them in the garbage. Install new Akebono brake pads from Japan.
I got mine from ebay for $39.00. Your worries will be over.

Thanks again, all.

I pulled the pads and applied some anti-squeal compound, and so far that seems to have helped a lot; about 90% better. I noticed the backing plates showed signs of scuffing from the calipers, which the old pads didn't have.

The other tips may also be valid, though, and I would certainly consider replacing the pads if this fix doesn't last.

Another thing: The backing plate on one of the pads was slightly caught on the caliper edge and it may have caused a lot of the noise from vibration.
