i dont think they need to be machiend coz when i brake hardish the car is stable... duznt shake. but when i slightly kiss the brakes all 4 squeel soo bad, its embarassing to stop.

its been goin on for about 2-3 weeks, at first i thought it was just dust or somthing else but its still there...

my 4B does it and my dad said it was a slight vibration in the pads as they get worn because they are heavy duty or something so they are designed to be braking hard. you'll find new performance cars squeal straight from the showroom floor because of performance brakes not designed to jsut lightly brake but more stomp on it.

how old are your pads? when pads get very old/low they will start to squeel...

also applying the brakes lightly is more likey to make them squeel as the pad will just be skimming the rotor but when u slam them on the pad will bite into the rotor more.
