I just got new brake pads and shoes. Now my breaks squeal every time I am in reverse. Do they need "breaking in" or is there another problem at work here?

Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.is the squeak in the front or the rear?Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. John aka eauto
I think it's just the rear. It has done this (both front and back) after raining, but then it goes away. This does not.
did you machine the drums or replace them?
I didn't do anything, I took it to a repair shop for my 60K. I can try and find the detailed receipt and see if it has details. I'm hesitant to go back to them as I had a question about the alinment and then all of a sudden I need all new tires.
can you read the bill and reply back?
Ok, i'm in violation of not filing paperwork for many, many months, let me look in one more place...
lol ..let me me know ;-)
I can't believe that I have found every other conceiveable document both that one. Per my manual, they should have put in disc breaks, but it doesn't say anything more than that.
i would verify if the machined or replaced the drums and rotors...if they did not they need to be machined...But before you spend any more money i would drive it 2 to 300 miles and make sure the pads and break in ...Sometimes the glaze needs to be worn off...driving and stopping does this

I just found the document in my email. For both front and back:
*Disc Brake Pads & Rotors, Front - Replace
Includes: Replace or resurface rotors, clean and lube caliper slides, install brake pads. Retest and verify repair as required and perform final road test.
Front Premium Rotor
Front Ceramic Pads
*Disc Brake Pads & Rotors, Rear - Replace
Rear Disc Brake Rotor
Rear Ceramic Pads
sounds like they did everything... I would call the shop and tell them about the noise...But i would drive it a week and let the breaks break in...Sometimes it takes a few hundred miles
