2004 jeep cherokee emergency brake adjustment?

I have replaced the rear brakes and rotors with the premium ceramic brakes and new rotors and still I have this annoying SQUEEK from the brake. I am assuming it's the E brake needing adjustment...PLEASE HELP!!!!

is the squeak ony when you apply the normal brakes or just while driving?

if it is only when you apply the brakes, it could be the brakepads "squeaking" against the caliper. People assume the pads squeak against the rotor, but sometimes even NEW ones do. When you buy brakes, the store usually tried to get you to buy the grease fro like $3 for a tiny tube. Well, if you put RTV where the pad comes in contact with the caliper, it will rid the squeak ...and it's cheaper than that grease .

if it's squeaking WITHOUT applying the break, then your E brake MIGHT need adjusted...but usually they need adjusted OUT to grip better ..

hope this helps
