fisha Posted August 24, 2005 Share Posted August 24, 2005 Short story. Got relatively new pads and discs. They squeal . . . . real bad. Its been decreed that something should be done about them. ( We've all been there eh? ) I've read that some new pads now come with shims to stop the squealing. Before I chuck the good pads in the bin, are shims something that you can make yourself? I would assume you take the pad out, get a bit of metal, trace round the pad and cut out. Then slot cut shim between pad and piston. If so, what type and thickness of metal would be worth a try? kit-kat wrappers are possibly too thin, but would be easy to cut! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
