Hi, new to the forum. I have a 2015 3500 HD High top cargo van. It has had a squeal from the front pads when making a right hand turn or just a slight turn at high way speeds. I took it into the dealer and they de-glazed the pads and it worked for about an hour. Took it back and they ordered new replacements and refitted them. Worked well for about 3 days then the squeal returned. Not as bad but noticeable. I had a similar situation with an 05 Chevy 3/4 ton and it was a bad run of parts. Has anyone out there had similar issues? It stops great for a big truck. I can live with the issue because it only happens when pads are cold or due build up on rotors and the slight film of rust as a result.  It clears after driving but still happens intermittently through out the day. I have less than a thousand miles on it and feel maybe they just need to set in. Ant suggestions would be great, Thanks.

Yes, i know I'm replying to a dead issue...but for the record my DW complained of brake noise at 80k and I shrugged her off b/c I expected longer pad life than that.  Turns out the bottom rear passenger slide pin was seized from rust where the interior rubber seal failed.  Not sure why.  The caliper on that side was only $185, but the driver side is almost $100 more for some reason.  The brakes work so much better now.  Less effort.


Just FYI
