When I changed out my pads, I replaced them with PBR (Axiss) Deluxe pads. To reduce the squeal that these brakes seem to cause, I used anti-squeal compound on the brakes. It has helped tremendously to eliminate brake squeal.

If you are just replacing your brakes with OEM pads, I don't think its necessary, but it won't hurt to apply it yourself.

If you are putting on racing pads, no amount of brake silencer will help.

If you are putting on street pads, definately slather on some of that stuff...Makes a huge difference on street pads.

Thanks,

I'm planning on installing new Brembo OEM rotors, Cryo treated with Axxis Ultimate pads.

so sounds like I should use some of those anti sqeak stuff.

Not if they're drilled or slatted.

Drilled or slatted rotor will induce a lot more vibration into the caliper. No amount of anti-squeal will quiet those brakes. Live with the squeals...You should see the looks I get when I pull up to a stop. Brembo drilled rotors coupled with racing pads makes like I'm driving a FedEx delivery truck.

This stuff goes on the back of the pad? I have never used it on any of four sets of stock pads, but my brakes don't squeel, so I have never researched it. Can someone give a quick explanation of why it helps? I am assuming the back of the pad - I can't imagine putting any gel like substance on the friction surface.

yes, this stuff is appied on the back of the pads and must wait for it to dry before installing.

I am also not sure how they are suppose to help.

I've heard that Axxis pad do squeak so I'm going to put this stuff on the pads.

I always thought it worked by damping vibrations.

That stuff always smells suspiciously like Elmer's glue to me.......

Brake squeal comes from the back of the backing plate (metal) vibrating against the frame of the caliper. The brake pad on rotor actually do not create any sort of squealing noise.

How this prevents squeal, is the compound drys to a semi-hard rubbery compound and dampens the vibration against the frame of the caliper (theoretically), that's why you need to wait for it to dry before installing for maximum efficiency. However, with REALLY grabby brake pads, there's little to nothing you can do.
