Squeal when I brake - 2008 WRX

My 2008 WRX have been making a squeal/screeching noise when I brake. This only happens when I have been driving for sometime, it doesn't make this noise when the weather is cold and car has not been driven for sometime.

Do I need to get my brakes replaced? If so is it just the brake pads or the rotors as well?

Thank you,

Have you looked at your pads/rotors yet?

How many miles are on the pads/rotors?

Front has 20% and rear has 30%

% remaining? How many miles are on them?

i just bought a 03 with the same problem. i wasnt sure if it was just the abs or not. i plan to have mine checked out, since i need to get it inspected anyway. let us know what happens.

I decided to purchase the Stoptech Street Performance Pads. I had a question I called a subaru mechanic shop. The person told me if I wanted to get my rotors resurfaced/turned is this something that I will need get done or would it fine without it? Also what are the pros and cons if I decide not get it done compared to getting it done?

Any grooves currently in your rotors will be re-cut back into the pads and you could make noise if that happens.
