anyone else have squeaky brakes?

I thought my front brakes were bad, so I pulled the wheels. all brand new brakes and rotors. I checked to see if the slide pins were stuck. they were not.
is this a normal issue with these trucks?

Mine has squealed from day 1 with new pads and rotors... It also depends on the type of pads u buy... As far as compound like really metallic and what not...

Mine have squeaked since I replaced them. I've serviced them 3 times and they still squeal. Where did you get you pads?

our brand new f450 has squeaked since the day we picked it up. took it to ford and said everything looked fine. I put brakes on my sisters explorer that were squeaking but pads and rotors looked fine. she had me replace them anyway because of the noise and still didnt fix it. i hate brakes

Seems like on our trucks when people don't use oem pads or rotors there is always some sort of problem. I still have original brakes 110k miles

Check for moisture. If your pads aren't worn, this is probably the culprit.

I was told once that squeaks are caused by dirty pads or rotors. I find that a good slam on the brakes from 40 or 50 mph to a dead stop will burn out and clean off any grime. You might try this a couple times, works for me.
