brake squeal usually isnt caused by the pads themselves (unless youre hitting the squealers of rivets). 95% of the time it is bacause the caliper is not sliding on its pins freely. take the caliper off and clean the pins and make sure they slide nice and free. this will stop the problem. i just recleaned my pins and greased them up the other day actually to get they quiet again.
