Default Brake Noise

i recently replaced my pads and rotors with new pads and slotted/drilled rotors but my car is making noise as if i never changed them. if im driving at low speeds theres a grinding noise and when i turn as well. when i hit the brakes the sound like theyre old but these are brand new pads/rotors. i looked at the rotors and they dont show any severe wear or anything so im trying to pin point why they would still sound bad if they were just replaced.

Did you replace all 4? Is your dust shield bent and making contact with the rotor?

What brand of rotors did you get? If its a "Zzzzzz" type of sound that may just be the slots in the rotors doing their job. I know that sounds dumb but I actually ran into this problem when I got slotted and drilled rotors and other people told me its normal and that's just how those rotors sound.

If its a grinding noise like a squeal it could just be a coat on the rotors or pads that will eventually wear off. I don't see why else you would have noise on brand new rotors and pads unless you installed them wrong or went really cheap on the cost of those new parts.

Exactly how long ago did you change pads & rotors? Do you know how many miles you've driven since?

sorry for the late response guys, havent been on in a while. i replaced all 4 rotors/pads with a brand off ebay but they werent a cheap brand. i used them on my last car with no problems. i changed them a couple days before i originally posted this. the sound never stopped but due to money problems i couldnt have it checked so i just parked it. i recently started driving it again because i had to and yesterday the abs and brake light came on while driving. i started another thread for that though. still dont know what caused the noise problem with brakes and if it led to the abs/brake light.

I would swap those brake pads out , do not EVER go CHEAP route on the pads,

get yourself some Cermanic pads , autozone makes a affordable and not over the price or you can get yourself some higher end.

did the pads come with the shims ? sometimes a dab of brake quiet on the shims helps out , not sure if this is the same issue you are having.

Wagner Thermoquiets, love them to death! I do get the "Zzzzzzz" sound in the rear rotors, but you get used to it.

the pads that came with it were ceramic. i might get some from auto zone to see if there is a difference. shims didnt come with them tho, used the old ones and im definetly getting some brake quiet to dab on.

I have a very similar issue right now, im thinking that the dust shield is the because you can hear it by slightly turning the wheel in park, during driving and the last few feet of braking sounds like the noise is revolving around in sync with the rotor almost; but it does make a sound as though you need to replace your pads and rotors. Nizmo said it best, dont EVER go Cheap when it comes to brakes, literally your life depends on them.
