Squeaky Front Brakes

I'm annoyed with my squeaky brakes. I changed my brake pads all around. It's nuts, here all this time I thought it was time to change the brakes pads.( I bought my Wrangler used.) When I did the pads were still meaty, hardly any wear to them. Long story short I replaced them anyways and the squeaking stopped. Well it's been 2 weeks since I replaced them and now they are squeaking again. I know its coming from the front passenger side. Anyone know what it could be?

Does it make noise all the time or just first thing in morning. Also weather effects lots of brake pads, high humidity or moisture equals squeak.

Could be the rotors, they might be warped, if they are you can have them resurfaced for like $10 a rotor at Napa

Anytime you have metal on metal contact, you have the possibility of squeaks. Rotors are metal, and most brake pads have metallic particles in them.

Check the rotors for grooves or a lip around the edge that has formed from contact with the pads. Or you can look for a fully synthetic pad, like something that replaces the metallic particles with kevlar or aramid fibers.
