The Brakes on my truck!!!

They squel like hell! THey were new when I bought it, they squealed like hell. I put new Hawk Performance HD pads on it, squeal like hell. I guess the next resort is some silicone lube between the pads and calipers. If that don't fix it, Im going to put new rotors on it.

WHat do you guys think?

Yup, good guess. (I knew it!!!) I noticed that when I pulled the other pads off. But, for some reason I didn't think about doing that when i put the Hawks on, Have done that with all my other trucks, '98 Ranger, '99 Explorer. Oh well, guess I do that tommorrow at work.
