Hmmnn...well, if the sound stayed the same after you changed out the old pads and rotors, they are definitely not the problem. Change them if you want better quaity but don't expect that to get rid of the squeak.

Is it a constant sound or does it come and go when you are driving (below 25mph)? Is it there all the time or when you go over bumps, turn and brake?

Is it a squeal, like metal on metal or a squeak like a rusty spring?

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
