Odd thing driving me scatty

On right turns I get a horrible squeak, squeak, squeak from my rear wheels - but only when turning right. It's bonkers and driving me round the twist . . . Why could this be?

Also squeaky, squeaky screechy front brakes however only since changing the discs but carrying over the existing pads. Should I change the pads too? Or should a liberal application of copper grease on the backs cure this again.

Sorry for the base questions but it's getting to the stage that I can hear this over the turned up music . . . .

Take it back to the dealer who did it and get then to do it properly. certainly change your pads as your old pads will wear irregularly against the new discs.

Did they use genuine or cheap copies?

I ALWAYS replace pads if changing discs. Old pads will take ages to match the surface of new discs, ie flat.
