New jeep owner

just purchased my jeep with only 32000 miles and noticed that the breaks do squeak when firm braking. My question is will switching to some stop tech pads help with the issue?

I have brand new Brembo's and they make some noise as well. Not all the time but still annoying. Rotors and pads.

^^^^ what he said!

I bought my 08 with about the same mileage and couldn't stand the noise! I upgraded to the drilled & slotted R1 rotors and the stoptech pads and now it's pure silence! Not a peep since! A couple vendors here could help you out if interested

I've had my stoptechs for close to 20k and haven't heard a sound, even when it is cold..
