Default Brake Pad Clips...

My new pads didnt come with the lil retainer clips on the brake pads.. they are the right pads though.. Now my brakes kinda squal when i decellerate in gear... take it outta gear and it gets realllly faint... same as when i tap brakes, it goes completely away... Anyho, is this a possibility as to why my brakes squeak

I think so. Those clips are suppost to keep the pad in place and some have anti-squeaking shim's or something like that. I am pretty sure you need those on, but I could be wrong. Also, did you spread disc-quiet stuff all over the back sides of the brake pad (where the piston touches the pad)?

Yeah I think ur missing the brake pad shim..thats what prevents brake squeal. You can get brake shims from autozone and stuff for cheap. And yeah, like Bond said, use the disc quiet junk and put it on the back of the pad where the piston hits the pad. Once you get the shim in, it should stop squeaking.

The problem you have isn't from the clips. Clean and lube the slides, also lube the back of the pad and then place the shims on em. Lube the section of the pads that come into contact with the caliper bracket also. This should resolve the issue you have at hand.

^^^^Yup . In some cases really bad wheel vibration has made lug nuts become loose, but never enough to be done by hand. Did you forget to tighten them?
