Dragging noise??

My Camaro makes this dragging noise every time I pull it out of the garage for the first time in the day (going forward). Does anyone else have this issue? Once warm and driven for a while it won't make the noise again till next day. Any advice? Thanks.

yours is a v6, correct?

it is the semi-metallic brake pads.

once they wear out, upgrade to ceramic or ferro-compound.

the SS has ceramic pads, but with 4 pistons, the extra grip causes them to do the same thing when cold. i will be upgrading mine to Hawk Performance HPS ferro-compound pads.
