: I started cleaning (with sandpaper) applying anti-seize compound to all sliding parts and the pads I purchase have built in anti squeal pads. Result, no squeals, ever.

You could purchase new hardware or have your shop replace the hardware and lubricate with anti-seize. The brake and rotor dust reacts with the high temperatures and does not allow the parts to slide freely resulting in high frequency vibrations, i.e.: squeeling.

Good Luck
