Make sure you are generous with the brake grease

Did you use proper lube at the pad guides as well as the sliders? Also anti-squeal usually solves most if not all squeaking unless of course the pads are down to 10% pad.

"Paste lube" (black color) is for all metal surfaces.(sliders,pins,etc.) "Sil-Glyde" (clear) for all rubber surfaces.(boots,bushings,etc.) DO NOT USE PASTE LUBE ON RUBBER PARTS!!!! It eats rubber over time. DO NOT GET PASTE LUBE ON THE PAD OR ROTOR!!! it will squeal like crazy.Paste lube is good up to like 10k degrees.So dont think it will just burn off.....IT WONT.

Honda recommends Dow Corning Molykote M77 or Daikalub
528D grease for the pad shim, back of the pads, and the pad retainers. These are considered a "moly" which is molybdenum disulfide. U can find the same stuff at pep boys, etc.

P/N 08C30-B0234M is recommend for the caliper pins/boots and piston seal/boots. P/N 08C30-B0234M is nothing more then 100% silicone grease which can be bought at any pep boys, autozone, etc.

The grease names I pulled right from the Helms manual. You should use it to ensure you are properly greasing all the locations.

Also Hawk Ceramic pads have shims glued onto the pad. U don't reuse your OEM shims.

Ok...I have a question about my breaks also. The breaks were replaced in march with no problems. Now I also have no cruise control, so about 3 weeks ago I looked under the dash to see if maybe the pedal was canceling the cruise and looked at the switches above the pedals...I did pull up on break pedal. So I go to leave the house and the breaks are stuck, and will release when I pull up on the pedal with my foot...but the breaks slowly apply themselves while I am driving and I have to continually pull up on the pedal while driving when I notice the breaks are applying. I have break dust all over the front wheels!! Any idea on what I may have done or how to fix this??? 2004 RSX.

Check the squealer on the rear pads. Does it have one or two (squeal tabs)? Is it on top or on the bottom? I put on my red stuff awhile back on had the squealer facing the bottom and it did what yours did now. I switched the pads around and problem solved. Just a suggestion

did u do anything to ur rotor? usually its good to resurface the rotors when replacing the pad... and hawk pad, aint that performance brake pad? i dunno what brand it was but one of my customer brought in a honda, with performace pads on'em. everything was o~K but the brake dust wouldnt get burnt off and it caused the brake to squeel. and if u installed the pads properly, then YES its ok to drive like that. mine's been squeeling and squeaking, but o wellz fuck it as long as there's no uneven wear on the pads i dont mind the noise.
