Exactly. I think the squeek comes from the pads and improper alignment. Never had a issue with squeeking, also I did it just because of the added weight in the front. Probably will never autocross this car or do any track days in it, it's just a fun cruiser and occasionally I will take it to the drags

I ended up buying stock s60r caliper bolts, trimming them down a hair and went with stock materials pads. Will know soon if the squeal goes away. I think my issue might be a alignment problem.

So far so good, 100 miles on the brakes, I used oem ac Delco pads and mounting hardware and oem s60r rotors. No noise and the brakes stop good. All in all it's a great upgrade so far!

I sometimes wonder if there's a time machine involved in this build, or I've been living a groundhog day over and over. One day it's "I have an idea about thing that totally may not work" and the next it's "okay, it's in and I put a few hundred/thousand miles on it". Kudos, or whatever you kids eat on the other coast...this is impressive stuff.

Lack of dealing with snow, flooding and constant yard/farm work probably helps with that.

Haha...true! Thanks, mopar, for giving me even MORE reasons to cite when my friends ask why I haven't gotten ANYTHING done on my projects. "dang varmint kids, snow, yardwork..." I feel better already!

This car is the best car.
Aside from the spider eyes, I love it entirely.

Soon! I am very fortunate as far as weather goes. However my occupation is a hd diesel tech so I work on vehicles all day, so it does get extremely tiring
