A couple of months ago i had to have my brakes checked so i took them to a local auto shop to get a brake job. i had my brakes replaced with generic matallic brake pads. Now every time i step on the brakes i hear a very loud squaking sound, sometimes i hear a sound like meatal scraping metal. When i wash out the brakes alot of brake dust comes out of them, after that it stops for about a day. This is definatly not normal!

Any Questions? Ideas?

The sheild behind the rotor could be touching somewhere. Other then that...cheap pads creat alot of dust. My brakes squeeked alot when I first got them, but now there quiet.
