I put new pads on roughly 20k miles ago. I didn't turn my rotors which I should have done. They have squealed on and off during braking ever since. I have greased the slide pins and all of the metal on metal. Used anti squel on the shims 10k miles ago and no difference. So I have plenty of life on my pads and rotors. I currently have all of the tires off replacing struts. Anything else I need to look at while the tires are pulled off? The pads are a semi ceramic / metallic if I recall.

If bedding the pads (as rocky suggested) doesn't work, check to be sure the pads are LOOSE in their Stainless Steel top & bottom holders. If not, file the edges of the backing plate until they are.

Tight pads could be a result of corrosion under the SS plates. Honda recommends filing the calipers under the SS, then applying brake grease to reduce further corrosion. Don't mix the SS guides up, top & bottom are different.

If all else fails, a different brand of pad might be needed.
