    so the truck only has 6xxx miles on it, and the brakes squeak when i apply the breaks which to me means they need to be replaced but there is no way they are dead already, only applied the brakes hard once, other than that its always smooth and easy.

    tried searching but none for something this soon.

    thanks for any responses

    true i was going off the base that most some pads squeak when need replacing.

    I would take the pads out and clean the slides. It is not a big job. Most likely dirt.

    Do some hard braking and it should go away. Get up to 50 mph and hit the brake hard. Do that a few times and your golden.

    brake dust ... also, usually its not the brakes that squeel when they are worn down. its usually a little metal tab, or clip, attached to the brake pad that only touches the rotor when the pad is worn down enough. This is unless you have 0 pad left and are grinding metal to metal.

    Front or back? My back ones have squeaked when cold and just before coming to a complete stop from day 1. I took the drums off and blew out all the dust with compressed air (spare me the lecture about brake dust causing me to grow a 3rd arm out of my chest). I then pried the pad back just a little and put a dab of grease where they contact the housing. That lasted for a couple of months and then came back. Now I just blow them out every time I rotate the tires and it seems to quiet them down.
