I am currently rebuilding my calipers, and have new discs and pads, should I get some anti-squeal shims and put them in place or wait and see if it starts squealing?

My brakes used to squeel but after I got my wheels back from being refurbished and they were all clean, the squeel stopped.
So not sure if you try completely cleaning the wheel it may cure the squeel. :lol:
