    Copper grease!,as said in other threads slap it on all contact surfaces (except friction face) and the squealing will disappear.

    ?Did you grease the back of the pads when you fitted them ..if not this is the usual cause of brake squeel...do not slap copper grease all over the place..you only need a smiggen at back of pads..you risk contaminating pads if you over use.

    Oh and also some makes of pads are more prone to squeeling than others.

    the cheaper, budget pads tend to squeal more then genuine Vx parts. If the squealing's only started since changing brakes, you need to get some copper grease on the backs of the pads.

    In case you didn't realise - brake squeal is caused by high frequency vibration between the metal parts of the pads and the calipers. The grease just damps this vibration and so eliminates the noise

    Some premium brand also squeal due to the hardness of the friction material.

    Copper slip is good, but silver slip is even better with much higher temperature resistance limits, but it's about 10x the price.
