    My disc brakes are squeaking. I've heard I need to grease the back of the brake pads. What kind of grease should I use? Any tips? Thanks!

    I've used spray paint before. You can go to any parts store and ask for "disc brake quiet" It's basically a thick paint that minimizes the vibrations that cause squeaks.Keep it off the pads tho'! And I definately wouldn't use grease.
