2009 Scion XD, 110K miles.
I replaced my front rotors and pads with the Raybestos brake kit found on Rock Auto.com. Since I live in the rust belt, and my current rotors rusted apart before the pads burned down, I opted for the coated rotors! Anyway, I'm over 50 and have been doing my own brake jobs since 16 and don't recall the issue of pads riding on my rotors making a slight noise.
I hear it with my windows down, noise bouncing back off the curb or parked cars. It's not pressure, it's not slowing down the car. My car is not pulling when braking. I used silicone to lube the sliders. Used a wire brush to clean the calipers and brush off rust at the contact points where rotor meets the hub assembly and applied anti seize. Used the new clips with the brake kit and the pads came with shims.
It seems the pads are touching the rotors just gliding down the road making that metal noise and it's driving me nuts. Not super loud; I'm just not used to it. I took the brakes apart and I'm not happy and can't find anything wrong! Should I just wait to see if after some pad wear it goes away?
