when the vehicle is cold and I back out of the drive way, the front brakes make the most awfully loud squeal when braking in reverse.
I had the rotors turned and that temporarily helped but the squeal came back in a week or so
The front pads had plenty of wear left on them but they didn't have the OEM anti-squeal plates on them so I bought some OEM pads with the metal anti-squeal plates plus I applied the orange anti-squeal grease to the backs of the pads. The squeal went away for a few months but now it is back again.
the original pads didn't show any uneven wear so I'm led to believe that the calipers are working fine. i originally suspected that maybe one of the two pistons wasn't working as well which caused uneven pressure to the pad resulting in the squeal. however the pads were worn evenly so i doubt the calipers are the cause.
the return springs seemed to be working OK. does anyone have any ideas as to what else I can check?
