2012 Developed Rear Brake Squeal

I have a 2012 wk2 srt and just recently it developed the rear brake squeal. I know that it was a known issue for the wk1 and I was wondering what guys would do to get rid of the squeal or why it was happening. I have done the bedding procedure but it does come back shortly after.

Re: 2012 Developed Rear Brake Squeal

brembo says you need to drive these brakes hard or you will develop glazing which leads to squeal.......
I would swap them with the stoptech pads

Re: 2012 Developed Rear Brake Squeal

What is the bedding procedure? I noticed one of my brakes squeeks lightly. I typically drive it somewhat hard but hey we can't beat on these beasts all day every day can we?!
