I just recently changed my break pads but my breaks are still squeeking. One guy I talked to said to get my rotors turned. Is this true?? :confused:

Yes, as well as using "Disc Brake Quiet" it is a orange/red silicone type stuff that goes between you pad and the surface of the caliper it comes in contact with. It cured my sqeel probs.

It's because you didn't have the rotors "turned."

Go to the closest parts store and buy brake pad SHIMS for the pads. That should cure the problem. And don't worry about ruining the pads.. If you cut the rotors , you can still use the pads you just purchased.

That is not a good idea, maybe for an escort but for a turbo DSM where you actually need some good brakes? Not smart and definetly not a permanent solution by any means. Why spend money on junk? Fix it right the first time and you don't have to do these stupid cheap fixes that accomplish nothing in the end.
