Why would new Ceramic brake pads make a faint grinding noise?

Hey Barry ==This is the nature of ceramic pads. You just have to live with it. goodluckJoe

Actually its because you bought the cheap ceramic pads and did not put the grease on the back of the pads. I have put many ceramic pads on my own vehicles and have never had one make any noise. If its bothering you next time put the ceramic noise reduction grease on the back. Should have came with the pads when you bought them. Also make sure and buy the more expensive ultra quiet ceramic pads. Yeah they are $5 more but well worth the extra.
