Hello guys, I need help for my 2015 Jeep Compass with over 70K mileage. When I brake, I hear squeaking noises and it irritates me hearing that. Does it sound good to replace the brake pads only? or I should also replace the rotors?

Also, I already bought brake pads from R1 concepts and ready to go to a mechanic. I'm just waiting for your advise for approval If should buy a rotor.

Thank you

I would say it depends on how long you have needed brakes. If you are just now hearing a squeaking you should be fine. Brake pads have a built in wear indicator that squeaks when they are getting low.

However, if you run them too long it can cause uneven rotor wear and gouges in the rotor and then they will need to be replaced.
