    Default squeaking noise when braking

    Hi, my isuzu squeks when braking.....driving me mad obvious.. ...... background : 2 months back I replaced brake pads with some cheap brake pads in green box (NO skimming) because of metal to metal noise I was getting. 16 October took izuzu for its 150K km at the isuzu dealership on NOrth coast rd ... they advised that I needed to replace front pads and disks - which I was surprised since new pads were less then month old, opted to do it privately. Last week friday, took izuzu to HQ, they replaced front drums( ferrodo) and pads(safeline).....plus wheel alignment ..R3K later.. few hours later, squeaking is back and I am losing my mind. any pointers ??

    I would personally not install safeline in a kiddies boxcart but that's just me.

    If you tend to use the breaks lightly, the pad's edges might become very sharp, causing that noise.
    If there isn't any damage to the pads or disks, give the breaks a good work out: hit the breaks hard, obviously make sure you don't have anyone behind you, otherwise the noise from the breaks wouldn't be your main worry anymore. Do that a couple of times. That should get rid of that noise.
