Default 05 Mustang - Squeak only when accelerating!

I have an 05 Mustang, If I'm on the accelerator a tad no squeak If I give it more gas the squeak is there, if i give it even more gas the squeak goes away.

Its the most annoying thing ever! I'm thinking its the brakes (rotors). Below is a picture of my right left rotor and a noticeable upwards ridge. I noticed as well when I brake really hard my steering shakes. I'm thinking my rotors are shot and I'm in need of a brake job!


Any help is much appreciated!

You are probably hearing the alerts that tell you your pads are done - there is a metal tab that connects with the rotor. And looking at that rotor it looks to me like it is well beyond the point of replacement - at least from the picture, which is hard to diagnose as opposed to "live"

And you'd be correct. Those rotors are done so you'd do well to upgrade rotors and pads. You could also upgrade to braided steel lines and paint the calipers.

Any Recommendations on rotors and pads? I'm definitely gonna make time and clean my suspension and paint some parts.

My car has cryo treated Powerslot front rotors plus Hawk ceramic pads, and I'm very happy with them. They produce minimal brake dust and have very good fade resistance.

I am not saying that it is not the brakes but if that doesn't fix it Look at the universal joints on the driveshaft.... Of if you want to check that first jack up the back end and rotate the rear tires in neutral.
