I don't know much about cars, I have a tsx 07. Lately my brakes have been making a squeeking sound when I come to a stop. My brakes feel fine thoug, any idea what it is?

If they're not pulsating when you apply the brakes. Just needs pads probably.

AC Delco pads on Rock Auto can be had for ~ $35/front, $30/rear. Great pads. Don't throw brake dust on wheels. OEM quality.

Another thing is, when i'm coming down a hill and putting on the brakes it kinda shakes like a bumping sound a little bit but only coming down hill.

rotors are warped...

most likely the front.

How many miles are on the brakes?

I just redid all my brakes on Sat. $240 for rotors and pads from RockAuto
-Centric premium rotors
-AC Delco pads

I'm not sure how many miles are on the brakes, I got the the car last April with about 44k on it.

Squeaking most likely the squeakers on your brake pads telling you they are low on life. The shimming could be warped rotors or uneven pad material on the rotor. I would just do what cl9 Jon did and replace front rotors and pads.

It really isn't hard at all. If you had some basic tools such as clamps, sockets, screw driver, and pb blaster and a friend who had done this before to show you how to do it on one side of the car, you could do it yourself on the otherside. You definitely save quite a bit of money doing this yourself.

Eh... yea...I dunno what kind of shop you go to.

order those parts I told you and take them there though. If they order your parts you'll pay more for lower qlty components

If he runs into issues, like I did this weekend, he's screwed... these cars are getting old now. Mine is an '06 with 63k mi.

I had one seized front caliper and one rear....

ended up changing all 4 calipers... so my $240 brake job became a $500 job... lots extra fun swapping calipers and bleeding brakes.
