Have brake rotors machined just enough to remove the glaze... Need 'premium' brake pads and proper hardware installed also!!!! Just throwing on a set of pads from Advance Auto.... Usually don't help!

Depends on who replaced them and the quality of the parts. As stated by pushrod those cheap pads you get at the "big" box auto parts stores are cheap, but cheap usually means just that...cheap. I go through it daily at my shop and 9 out of 10 times it is poor installation (not cleaning all the rust, etc) or cheap pads. You can live with it or have the job done correctly with quality parts. Even then, as a vehicle ages, wear to the hub surface, suspension components, caliper pins, etc all compound to contribute to brake vibration which causes noise. Especially on a vehicle of that age, you will need to ensure the integrity of the entire from end, calipers, rotors, to completely eliminate all nuisance brake noises
