Thanks for your help guys. Going to try the ceramic pads.

When I first bought my car six years ago I have a 2005Z 51 and the brakes squeal like crazy I bought some brake squeal stopper that you basically just put on the back of the pads and it keeps the pad stuck to the back of the caliber

I have only done that once or six years ago never change my brakes, when they start squeaking again I just break really hard a few times and it goes away

Come to think of it I probably need new brakes

Had intermittent squeaks from my brakes until I went to the drag strip. 4 hard stops from 116mph seems to have taken care of the problem.

It cleans off the pads and rotor surfaces at the same time.
