    Regardless of this being a Honda board I'll give it a shot

    Got a 99 GS-T and the brakes squeel like a virgin cheeleader during prom night. Changed the pads and they squeel, changed the rotors (upgraded to slottled) and the still squeel. I read up on it and I'm supposed to use a special organic type of brake pad? ANd suggestions?

    squealing is fine. grinding isn't. As long as they grab like they should, don't worry about it.

    there may be brake dust on the pad/rotor. But yea, its ok as long as they dont grind.... grinding is bad.

    Give them some time to break in.

    what kind of pads are you running .... the more agressive the pads are the louder they are

    it's just a squeal. and it gets annoying at times. No grinding at all. Just not the quiet braking I'm used to.

    Well the thing is that they've squealed before AND after the changing of the bads.
