Re: Brakes keep squeaking but dont need replacing!
Copper grease is no longer recommended to be used on or near brakes as it rots the caliper piston gaitors and is very good at attracting brake dust.
There are numerous so-called anti-squeal products out there which are much more suitable.
One which I have found to be very good is one called Permatex.
Brake squeal is usually caused by the pad vibrating between either the disc, caliper piston or caliper housing so it is essential these are clean and in good condition.
