Hey guys!

My wife has a 2019 JLU sport. We bought the Jeep and the brakes squealed under light "normal" braking. Hard braking, no problem.

We had OEM pads put on since it had 30k miles. They said the pads looked good when they pulled them off. Resurfaced rotors and within a week, it was back to squealing again.

It seems to me that it happens more now that it's cold.

Are Jeep OEM pads just a harder compound or something?

I've had a couple of track cars and the track pads make a similar squeal...just wondering! First time Jeeper (and loving it!) TIA

I don’t know if it’s the same issue, but my 2021 makes brake noise under the same circumstances.

for me, it’s glazing - a few good 60-10 slow downs will clear it up.

Basically re-bed the pads. I will try that...I bed the pads in when I got it. Shops don't do that...SMH

Is it only squealing at the beginning of a ride before they warm up, or all the time? My stock JLUR brakes developed a squeal that went away after a couple miles. It got more noticeable and lasted longer into a ride when it got colder. They didn't have a lot of wear after about 30k miles, when I replaced them with a set of PowerStop Z36 pads and drilled and slotted rotors. The Jeep is nearing 60k now, and they are still quiet. Stopping power was also noticeably increased.
