    brake squeal

    I have a set of matrix iso ceramic brake surface rims and cool stop ceramic pads. the noise is unbelievable. I tried toeing the pads in and it helped some but not that much. what else could be causing this ? and what else can I do to fix it?

    The pads should be toed in roughly the thickess of a business card, or maybe two thicknesses of business card. Other than that, try sandpaper cleaning the pads, and going around the rim with either a ScotchBrite pad or some VERY fine sandpaper.
