    Does any one else's trucks brakes sometimes squeak in the morning?


    Mine do it sporadically only when backing out of my drive way first thing in the morning. It doesn't happen only when it's wet/cold/warm/whatever it just seems to randomly do it some mornings. On the days it does squeak once I get up my road about 50 feet to a stop sign it never squeaks.


    Not a big deal I'm sure new pads would stop it I was just curious if other people had the same thing going on.

    Overnight your rotors will rust a little bit (due to the moisture in the air). The squeaking is caused by the pads rubbing against the rough rotor, and the rust is rubbed off almost immediately when you start driving. It is perfectly normal, and new pads wont help.

    Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I am now having this exact same issue. I bought my 05 a couple years ago used. No idea what pads/rotors were on it. Last January I got my frame replaced, and at the time I had new calipers, pads and rotors put on by the dealer because the calipers were sticking. They replaced them with I assume factory parts, cause the dealer did everything. So now lately, I am having this same issue. Never had this issue before now, and haven't had it on any other car. When backing out of my driveway or when pulling out and stopping after the car has sat at work. For the first slow speed stop or two the brakes squeak HORRIBLY. Like to the point I'm pretty sure I'm waking up the entire neighborhood. After I get going, it stops. I took the truck into the dealer monday to have them look at it. They said it was normal, just the pads getting rid of the rust, and there wasn't anything they could do besides turning the rotors. Well the rotors are brand new so I didn't want them to do that.
    Is there anything that can be done besides replace the rotors with some nice brembo ones, or do I just deal with it.

    Well, called the dealer and they are going to replace the rotors and pads under warranty on Monday.
