a few questions on brakes and strut squeak

i have replaced front rotors and pads but after a couple of weeks front pads start to squeal even at low temperature (or just coming out from garage). went back to the shop and they were happy to exchange the squeaking pads. It eventaully ended up to these brands (meyle, trucktec, icer) that were on and off my car but the squeaking still persists todate. I went to another MB shop and was asking for the OEM and they handed out "textar" but shop owner claims that even with the textar there will still be squeaking. Is there an end solution to this? Please note that not all brands in US are available here, so I will just need pointers to confirm that textar do squeak.

second, I changed rear struts with bilstein HD, after a few runs, the right rear strut started squeaking but problem is that I am unable to confrim were this is coming from. The only suspect I have is the rear strut since this was the last item touched in the process. What else could I be missing?

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried disk brake quiet on the back of the pads?



Also did you lubricate the piston seal on the caliper?
