new noob here...have question...need help...

hi new to this board...
00 GTS 6spd
mods: TRD exhaust, TRD springs, TRD shocks/struts, TRD shortshifter, AEM CAI, st rear sway bars, tanabe front strut bar, Clear Corners, redded out taillights, panasonic head unit, kicker amp..2 10in. kicker comp vr subs...

wanted to say hi and had a quick brake question, hoping to get some help or advice...

recently changed out my brakes pads and rotors but now my rear wheel is squeeling? with each tire rotation, it squeaks faster...and also when i brake...anyone know what i should check for or what could be going on?...interesting thing is a friend of mine just changed out his rear brakes as well but his pads did not have a little silver metal clip unlike mine...we both ordered the parts from the same dealership...any help will be great! thanks in advance!!

sounds like the pads are misaligned or even the wheel possibly. Get them checked. I think it's the pads rubbing against the wheel are certain points...but you may need an alignment...get both things checked.
