2001 Ford Focus Question: brakes

Does anyone else having a promblem with the brakes squealing even after brake pads were changed ? -
Answer 1
Quality of brake pad and brake rotor surface finish can contribute to brake squeal. I use Wagner thermoquite on most cars and have never had squealing problems. If the pads are good is the rotor surface finish good? -
Comment 1
Do you use thermoquite before you put the tires back on? -
Answer 2
Yes - And the shop that installed the brakes cannot make the noise go away. -
