Well I put in BMB rotors and break pads on my tj about 3 months ago. Recently (about a week) I started hearing the breaks squeaking only right before I come to a complete stop. I'm inclined to think its the drums but they are not even close to 50% and it sounds more like the front then the back. I want to say it started after going through a puddle of water when it was raining. Any help on how to stop the noise?

I don't think it came with it. All I did was clean them up with simple green

Like krisbman said you need to use brake lube on the back of the pads and anywhere you see signs of rubbing. I usually lube the pad backs, the front of the caliper piston and the hooks on the end of the pads. This is the stuff I use Napa sells it...that little jug will last a long time.
