Are you sure the noise is from the brakes?
Could you be hearing noise resonating through the Suspension?
On Automatic transmissions for instance. If I lightly hold my foot on the brake pedal while the transmission is in drive, the rubbing of the
brake pads on the discs, causes a loud creaking noise through the suspension / coil springs as the vehicle starts to move slowly.
Try only using your hand brake / emergency brake. Does the noise still happen?
Does the noise only happen after a "cold start" (vehicle sitting over night)? Does the noise go away after you have been driving for some time?
Different brake shoe manufacturers use different compounds / additives, try different brake shoes. An unnecessary expense if your brake
shoes / pads are still nice and thick.
