    Hey all,

    just did the pads and rotors on my 14 CM. Did the manufacturers break in suggestions but still having a audible grading/squeak which I’ve localized to the rear. I’m presuming since it’s a drum brake set up the inner diameter of the new rotors is probably causing the drums to rub and that’s where my sound is coming from and I need to adjust but before I go chasing noises just wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue? Thanks!

    They're been posts about aftermarket rear rotors rubbing the dust shield for clearance. Take a look and see if you scrape marks.

    So for anyone who reads this and has a similar issues I opted for powerstop front and rear rotors and pads. I took the above advice and checked the dust covers as I had seen posts about it. I massaged the metal back a little bit with a hammer and air hammer however still had the issue. My issue I ended up finding was the bracket that holds the piston was actually rubbing the surface of the rotor on the rear passenger side and binding enough that i couldn’t turn the hub/rotor by hand. I had the rotor turned ever so slightly by a shop down the street and the issue was resolved. Just a heads up for ideas if anyone ever comes across this post with a similar issue.

    That's pretty crappy fitment. I'd be mad.

    Never liked those Powerstop kits. Another reason for me not to buy them.

    I wasn’t pleased. But didn’t find many reviews on the kits and took a chance. Get what ya pay for lesson learned
