I replaced my front rotors and pads on my 1993 Saturn SL(2?) and made sure I used the supplied silicone grease on the contact points, back of the pads and slider bolts. I made sure the wear indicators were not out too far. I made sure the pads were installed correctly, and I cleaned the hub surface where the rotor seats. I bled the brakes and attained the proper pedal height and feel.
I followed the break-in procedure that the manufacturer posted online. The brakes work well but I had a 'not too loud' squeak or chirp from the left side when turning to the right. I reinspected everything and found nothing obvious.
One thing mentioned when I searched is bearing play. I guess the fresh pads sit closer to the rotor. Any tips on verifying or what constitutes too much play? I have a dial gauge but not sure of the proper procedure. Do I have to simulate the load force when turning?
