Welcome to brembo brakes :(

Most likely what you propose will have no effect. If you have access to compressed air try blowing away as much brake dust as possible from the area where the pads contact the calipers. The squeak typically comes from dust buildup between the pads and the calipers / pistons.

Another thing you can try, if you are into wrenching on your car, is applying anti-squeal paste to the back of the pads. Luckily, Brembos are just about the easiest calipers to R&R pads. Remove 2 pins, pop off the spring tab, spread the pads a little and they slide right out the top without removing the calipers from the rotor.

I have seen reports from others with this issue. I would suggest that you give your dealer a call and see what GM recommends.

Not a bad idea though I'm loath to have a generic Chevy mechanic wrench on my cars or trucks, especially when you are talking about high performance cars like the Vette. If your dealer has a Vette specialist who's been to the C7 training then that's a bit better but I would still insist on meeting that mechanic and have some "discussions" prior to handing them the keys.

Typically applying the back of the pad grease is the factory response to these issues IF you get past the point of them saying, "that's normal".
