2007 Ford Taurus brake noise

brake noise from front disk brakes - new caliper, new pads and had the rotors turned.

Could be dust shield rubbing on rotor. To check for bad brake hose lift front end on jack stands have someone put hard pressure on brake pedal and release. Tires should turn by hand within 1 or 2 seconds after brake pedal is released.

That my be the problem.

Turning the rotors and achieving the proper finish so the brake pads bed properly into the rotors is pretty hard to do.

I don’t of a single shop that turns rotors anymore for this reason. Don’t like come-backs for noisy brakes.
