Question
what can I soak the front brake padsthdy in to eliminate a consistant loud squeak?

Answer
Hello Lyn,

NEVER soak the pads in anything!!!
Clean them with brake cleaner spray and apply a thin layer of copper paste on the back side of the pads (not on the friction material).

You should also look for possible cause of squeaking.
Loose disc and/or wheel spokes, calliper holder pin needs grease, calliper loose.

Feel free to come back, for any additional info.

Best Regards,
Lazaros.
