Good evening. Late last fall i put advance auto silver pads and rotors on front of the camry i have. Lately been having some squealing from left front. Friends shop looked at it for no charge. Said there was a lot of "gunk" on both ends of where pads sit. Thru the lil' area thru caliper you can see pad material he said looked like some stuff there too. Thinking of just biting bullet and getting top of the line pads (ceramic) and rotors. What say the BITOG faithful?

My friend cleaned out the caliper and said after test drive he didnt hear any squealing . On way home i heard it, a LOT

Best average priced solution: name brand pads, name brand rotors. www.carid.com has some really low prices lately on brake parts. Wagner Thermoquiet, Bosch Quietcast and ACDelco Professional to name a few.

If you can fix it yourself, I would disassemble, clean and re-lubricate. Also, you could try this. I saw Trav recommend it in a different thread.

If the pad and rotor still look ok try to fix it first, your labour is free and the materials are of negligible cost.

I put Wagner ThermoQuiet pads and name brand rotors on my Rav4. Squealed like crazy after a few months. Replaced with no name pads and no name rotors. Quiet as can be, now.

Correct. Clean, lube the pins and use CRC Disc Brake Quiet on the back of the pads, reassemble and its done, no more noise 100%.
If it stops okay with these pads regardless of who made them there is no need to toss them.

Akebono ProAct pads are what you want. If the brakes are not pulsating, I would have just did a pad slap.

Advance Auto Platinum pads have been very quiet for me as well. They have noise cancelling shims built into the back of the pads. OEM quality or better, in my opinion.

Maybe it needs the oem shim and fitment kit installed. I'd keep the current pads and rotors.

The "Toyota factory replacement shim kit" should help reduce the noise.

I don't understand how to use shim kits.

My understanding is they are placed around the pads then placed into the caliper. The_Critic has recommended them in the past and knows his stuff about Toyota brakes. He gave me the part number for the kit on the Matrix. He called them bracket hardware clips but Toyota calls them a fitment kit. For the Matrix the part number is 04947-02060. Prob the same for the Corolla of that generation. Different part number for the Camry would be my guess. The brake shims look equally important and are a different and separate part number.
