These brakes squeal really bad. I replaced my old Brembo pads because they squeal and they didn t even need it. I used a healthy amount of grease and at first they only squealed very slightly. Just today, they squeal so bad and it is very embarrassing. Every time I stop people look at me.
So far Brembo pads are a big Fad.
I am going to maybe try and bed them again. Last resort jack the car up, pull the pads and spray some anti squeal. The rear pads had 45deg corners and the fronts do not. maybe the fronts need to be beveled even though it sounds like its only the rears because of the lighter pressure?

I recently purchase this pads to meet two of my requirements: 1. Stop the noise 2. Stop the brake dust. I was concerned at first with the noise because after the bedding procedure the pads made noise on regular braking. But after a couple of miles of stop and go traffic during my daily work commute the noise stopped. I washed my wheels two weeks ago and the wheels are still shinny like I just washed them I am really happy about that no more black dubs. Performance braking power is not a concern of mine because my 300C is just a daily driver I am not planning on going to the track.

The previous owner of the Corvette had replaced the brakes a year ago with OEM ceramic brake pads and OEM cross drilled rotors. Upon inspection the brakes visually looked fine but braking power, initial bite, dusting and noise were not up to snuff (not bad but I knew it could be better). I decided to try the Hawk performance ceramic brake pads with brake paste on the outside shims (somehow it helps with noise). Big difference I am now completely happy with the brakes. 90% less dusting and a lot less noise with better initial bite (even with the somewhat harsh break in procedure). The OEM brakes weren t bad but compared to the Hawk s the difference is night and day. I hate noisy brakes and now there is only very occasional noise. The rotors were in great shape so I decided to skip the recommended sanding, machining, etc. If the Hawk s hold up I ll definitely get them again come the need for new brakes.
