Brake squeal problem!!

I have about 2000 miles on my street rod now, and the brakes are starting to squeal. I'm using Wilwood Billet Dynalite caliper on all 4 corners, with non-vented discs in the rear. Are there any tricks to keeping these quiet? I think it's only the rears making noise but it's hard to tell.I've heard of shims that are available, but I'm not sure if they are available for these calipers. Thanks, Dan

They do make or atleast used to a spread on and a spray on type of anti squeal stuff it goes between the caliper piston and the pad ive never had a brake squeal using this stuff. The reason im not sure if they still have this stuff is because alot of manufactures started putting a shim on there pads so the market may have dried up. But if its out there yet this stuff works well.

I use wheel bearing grease. It's specially formulated not to run when it gets hot. Hold a match up to a blob of it on the tip of a screwdriver and see. It won't run, stays put and dampens the vibrations which cause the squeal.
