I thought wear pads were supposed to squeak? Not sound like an iron dick rubbing up against the rusted leg of a giant...
Oh dear god.... Grand Cherokee brakes SUCK major ass. We had a 99 and my mother-in-law currently has it. When we first bought that thing (used)- the first thing we replaced was the rotors & calipers on the front (TSB calipers). Not 3 years later, replaced the front rotors again. They warp soooo frigin easy. Then, after selling it to my mother-in-law.....had to change the rear rotors/calipers because they were all messed up (gouged/chewed up). It's been fine since, but she only drives it 3k miles a year. We're eventually gonna get rid of the damn thing!!!
Did you inspect the rear rotors? They might be all gouged up and/or too thin.
On ours....we didn't get any warning of the rears being gouged. The pads were fine and the last time we checked them (maybe 2 years), everything looked good. Seems sometime in that 2 years, those rear rotors went to shit (wearing thin). That's just my experiences...
