Squealing Brakes

Has anyone experienced squealing brakes on their SRT when the temperature drops? I have less than 4000 miles on my 2014 SRT and when the temperature dropped into the 30's, my brakes were squealing very loudly. This doesn't seem normal as I have not experienced this on previous vehicles I have owned. I plan to take it to the dealership, but is this normal on SRT GC's?

Re: Squealing Brakes

I think it is normal for brembo brakes but i'll let the more experienced chime in.

Just get them a little hot, these after all these are racing brakes. Just push a little harder heats em up

Re: Squealing Brakes

I hear ya, but the squealing still seems abnormally loud even for Brembo brakes. The squealing sound literally sounds like a school bus coming to a stop.

Re: Squealing Brakes

quit babying that beast and drive it hard! Even the brembo engineers did a video on drivesrt.com saying don't baby these beasts. It sounds as if your pads/rotors are glazed.....

You could try some hard runs up to 60 mph...then hard brake until 10 mph....don't stop. Do this 2-3 times and then drive to cool off the brakes.
