Default Anyone Know Why My Brakes Squeak In Reverse Only?

It's not warped rotors.
Sometimes I get the feeling that a bad injector will get blamed on warped rotors around here....

Could be 2 reasons.

Pads run forward 99.99% of the time, and get scrubbed in that direction almost exclusively. When run backwards, and at slow speeds this directional scrubbing makes the pads vibrate.

While that's possible.... it's more likely that it has to do with a small rust coating being scrubbed off that makes the pad vibrate.
