Angry Unbearable front brake squeal!

I have a 1986 Turbo 911 with 38,000 miles that I purchased last year that is embarrassing to stop! Horrible squeal coming from front. Before I purchased, previous owner had just put on Mintex brake pads, along with the "anti-squeal" backing that sticks to the pads. They only squeal when almost to a dead stop. I took apart everything, and even ordered and put on Weltmeister anti-squeal stick on liners, but still does the same thing. I used brake caliber grease on all the moving parts, and examined where the squealing is coming from with the wheels off, and seems to be more from passenger side. Any suggestions? I am tired of stopping with my handbrake!

Get rid of the Mintex pads and the anti-squeal goop.

Get some good pads like Porterfield R4S, PBR Ultimate Ceramic, or other good brand like Textar.

That is what I would do at least...

You will need to re-bed your pads, though. If that does not work, maybe have your shop turn your rotors on a lathe?
