2011 cruze eco, 60k miles on.
Recently both the front and the rear brakes started squeaking.
I replaced the front pads, but they had 1/3rd more life on them.
Changed them to ceramic brakes, they had a better stopping power and grip (bite).

From what I understood, is that the brake pads themselves were ok, but should I have known, I could have just replaced the front (disc) brake pad hardware (the 2 little metal plates that hold the brake shoe).
It would have helped with the squeaking noises.

I wonder if there's a small adjustment i need to do for my rear brakes as well (they're drum brakes)?

Thanks.

I haven't touched them yet, but I notice that the squeak is significantly bigger on hot days.
On cold days I barely hear it.
It's only when the wheels are cold.
Perhaps it's time to open them up.. I just don't have the time for it :(
