Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently changed my wife's front breaks and
rotors.. Everything seemed fine after I tested them,  
but then a few days later they started to squeaking
when she would come to a stop. It's not a grinding
sound just squeakin and only from the driver side
front tire Can anyone help me figure this problem
out? Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have a
great day

Did you use any anti-squeal pads or compound on the backs of the new pads?

There are a number of brands, just ask the guys at the auto parts store for anti-squeal compound but the pads are better in my opinion if you can get them.

I like using CRC Disc brake quite. Also make sure you lube the caliper pins with silicone grease.
