Like a squeaking, squealing noise?

All I know is that when I replaced my rear rotors/pads, my whistling stopped.

2+2=....

2+2=7 [rolleyes]...wtfuck?

anyways i checked the pads. they still have a lot of life left in them. i don't know, this noise just started 2 days ago.

Either you got dirt between the pads/rotor or you glazed them by braking too hard...

If they are glazed just take it eazy and it should go away after a week or two... Or if you want to throw money away cause you don't want them to squeek NOW then take it to a shop and have them turn your rotors...
