It was the pads. They looked fine (like new), but I guess not.

I honestly don’t recall...but, yeah...this one is all on me.

I got them a couple years ago on clearance at Rock@uto. They were cheap enough that I figured I’d try them out. They were great up until this.
I never meant to leave them on long term, but sort of forgot. I needed a quick fix on a budget to pass inspection at the time.

I replaced them with Textar pads today and everything is back to normal.

Cheaping out didn’t work for me this time

I had a feeling it was the pads.
I'm glad it wasn't something major

Yay! Sometimes the simplest answer is the right answer.
