    Stop this freakin squeekin

    So I made the mistake of using a buddies oily spray on chain lube. Well I guess it got on my disks, because now they slip and squeek to no end. I have pulled and degreased and brake cleaned the crap out of them. They hold good now, but still squeek upon engaging on the front. Does that crap soak into the pads or what?

    Whether you choose to bake your brake pads or pan fry them, don't forget to let them cool to room temperature before serving!

    Baking some pads is easier, quicker and cheaper then going to buy new ones.
