The squeal is the pad itself 9 times out of 10. Get the leading edge of your pads on a belt sander and knock off the sharp leading edge. Bed your pads in again and you may be just fine.

Also do you grease up the back of your pads when you install them to prevent any squealing? The reason im changing mine is the current pads and ones previous squeal like crazy under light low speed braking and its so annoying! I tried applying copper grease to the back of them but that didnt help, i tried them just installed with the supplied anti squeal shims, but nothing has helped. The pads i have in now are cheap unbranded ones i recently put in to replace some performance ones i had in there that were also squealing to see if that solved the problem. Could it be a problem with the rotors or calipers?

Either way ill try pickup up some pads next week to help in the troubleshooting process!
