    Brake squeal... advice/help!

    Hey guys... I just hit 3K miles on my 2019 Charger Scat Pack and every day after about 10 minutes of driving, my brakes squeal every time I come to a stop. Doesn't matter what "mode" that I'm in either. It's VERY annoying.

    Is this "normal?" Something I should have the dealer look at? I've never had a car do this... but I've also never had Brembo's either.

    Thanks!

    It's normal for these brakes. It's the only downside to the Brembos....they squeak.

    A few others have changed to Power Stop pads to keep the dust down, but idk if they still squeak or not.

    Yep my Camaro with factory Brembos squealed too, sometimes worse than my SP. I believe the Powerstops do help with it. Heat00 can probably confirm.

    As other said, new “quiet” pads. Otherwise, as long as you’re not getting poor performance or vibration, completely normal.

    My advice? Your exhaust is too quiet Brake squeal... advice/help!

    Mine squealed like crazy from day 1 . Thought it was front but after changing fronts still made noise. Replaced rears and it was gone. I went with Akebono pads from Rockauto. Pretty much zero dust, no noise and no difference in braking to me. ASP1053 and ASP1149 were the part numbers.

    Its not normal from experience. I have run 2, 4, 6, and 8 piston Brembo setups over the vears and not one had a squeal that I could not remedy.

    It's either due to:

    1. Poor amount of lubrication on the back of the pad/shim (I use CRC Silaramic on the back of the pad, shim and on the hardware)

    2. Pad compound. I use StopTech street performance up front and Akebono in the rear. With all other variables the same, some pads squeal and others do not.

    3. Sometimes a good bedding can take care of it.

    Sometimes it's the combination of the pad and rotor that just produces the harmonic and there's nothing you can do other than try another combination. For example, the Akebono mentioned above cause an incurable squeal on the front brakes but were silent in the rears. I went through 3 sets of pads to figure that one out. Once I replace the OEM rotors with an aftermarket option, I'll bet one of those previously squealing pads will be silent.
