I think you mean brake squeel, anyway there isnt all that much you can do. There is a paste/glue that can be applied to the metal side of the pads, also a different brand of pad maybe. Benix is a well known and trusted brand. What is the condition of your rotors? are they glazed, rippled, scored??

u could try 'contact cleaner' which removes any oil and dust film, and the stuff dries real quick. Contact cleaner is something sparkys use to clean bits.
