CTS-V Rear Brake Pads Squeal Like Pigs!

When i got my truck about a year ago the rear breakes made a lot of noise. At about 4k i replaced them with CTS-V rears and the problem went away.

It's back. Now the rears when coming to a slow stop don't squeak.....they squeal as if the truck has straight up track brakes on it.

I don't get it. Why after 7k of driving on these pads did they get so freakin loud?

any suggestions? Thanks.

actually, did you bed them in to begin with?? did you have the rotors turned when you replaced the pads? if not then the new pads would be pointless. i know alot of guys including myself are having issues with squeeling brakes, with oem pads and aftermarket pads. I'm starting to wonder if its the pads or the rotors. the rotors seem to wear really unevenly.

I had exactly the same experience after replacing my rear pads. I swapped for the CTS-V pads at about 9k. They were much better for a while now with 20k they definitely squeel but only when cold. One or two stops and they quiet right down but the cold stops are like nails on a chalk board. I'm going to try R1's next time I'm due for brakes.
