Ok, I have front and rear drilled/slotted rotors and the towing pads can't remember the number but when it is raining and or humid in the morning or after it has sat like at work, the squeak bad until I use them more. Is this normal, I've had them on for a few months now with no other issues? My factory set didn't do this.

I haven't had such a problem, including if the vehicle has sat outside for a few days without driving (and it's been raining).

How recently did you change your brakes disk and pads? Did you remember to put that special grease they include at the back of the pad and the "sliders" to stop squealing?

I have used Power Stops on three different vehicles and never had that problem. IIRC the pads are different on the inside and outside. Did you follow the break in procedure?

Yes, did the break in just as said in the instructions. And Miles, yes it is only for a couple times of use and they stop. I will pull them and clean the grooves, probably re-grease the slides just for grins since the pads are out.

More-so coming from the rears? I never really had squeaking from the fronts on my 2013 but cleaned out those grooves about once a year. It's embarrassing reversing out of my parking spot at work and everyone stares. lol

Mine squeak a little when backing out of the garage (after sitting overnight) but it quickly goes away.

Anybody tried the power stop kit from Amazon? I’m a prime junky but sometimes you don’t get what is sold from another source... sniffing toward the front & rear z36 pad and rotor set

I got that set off of Amazon back in Sept 2017. Working great, but I do get that initial squeak from them on more humid or rainy days after it's sat overnight or all day at work..

Usually have the first brake application, it goes away.

Very happy with them so far!

I would like to see a test of a blank rotor vs the Powerstop for 70-0. I would be there is no difference besides looking cool.

Another option would be from "BrakePerformance.com". I was running R1 rotors on my Ford Fusion Sport, but changed over to ones I got from BP (the drilled rotors had more holes). Traded the FFS in on my 2018 F150, put drilled rotors from BP on the truck too. I did it fairly early, so didn't get new pads. So far, no funny noises coming from the brakes, either at start up, just driving away, actually braking, etc.

I got mine from Rock Auto and yes they squeal when they are cold. I attributed it to the semi metallic pads. It stops after the first stop sign but was worse when brand new. I did the recommended break in with hard stops and dragging the brakes as directed.

Never heard a peep from my powestop z36’s I did use additional caliper grease in addition to what they furnish, that’s my main criticism... not enough grease supplied with kit.

The synthetic caliper grease from Oreily seems to be about the same

Normal for them...at least I had the same results. And I bedded them until they smoked
