i see that lots of ppl get their rotors and brakes replaced around 40-50 K well in the heat when i start to brake my durango starts to squek.. and well i took her in got them inspected and nothing wrong... he said i have tons of brake left and nothing wrong with my rotors... this MIDAS mechanic said its the design of the brakes and he gets a lot of durango's and dakota's with this problems..

so is it time for new rotors ? or anything else. ?

anybody else got this problem ?

I've had the same problem with my Raybestos quiet stop pads. I ended up getting new rotors and different pads. No more squeaking. If you still have the stock rotors, I would just get a good set of aftermarket. I know a lot of people have been going with the drilled and slotted rotors and love them.

You would definitely be happy with a new set of rotors and pads, however - I've heard that this "squeak" you hear, is actually high speed vibrations coming from the pad. Pick yourself up a can of anti-squeal spray for brakes, pull your pads off, give the backs of them a good coating of the spray, let them sit for a little bit, then re-install them (the spray turns into a sticky film, which I think is supposed to make it stick to the caliper better - which should reduce the vibration).

It may or may not fix your problem but it's pretty cheap so I think it's worth a shot.

well i dunno if that is gunna work becuase the squeking only happens when im braking under 20 KMH so that's pretty slow.. higher speeds theres a tiny squek but once it comes down to slow braking the drive thru lady has to plug her ears and and grim like the reaper :(...

When I say "high speed vibrations" - I don't mean the speed of your vehicle, I just mean how fast the pad is vibrating. There's probably a better way to explain it. Like crah said though, you'll be happy with a new set of pads and rotors - I was just trying to think of a cheaper alternative.

My squeel is also braking, under 20 mph, the only time. I however know my brake pads are low and I'm gonna replace the rotors (wish I could go with vipers, but I don't have 17's to put on in the winter, as that's the smallest size you can go with those brakes).

Question about the viper brakes - do you keep your ABS when you switch to vipers. And also, I have rear drums, what has to be done to that to convert it to disc?

About 10 years ago I bought the 3m anti-squeak spray (brown color) because the auto parts didn't have the cream version that the pads usually came with. They squeaked even with the spray, about a month later the squeaking went away.
