When I step on the brake when coming to a stop just before I make a complete stop I can hear a sqeaking noise what could be causing the sqeaking noise? The brake pad don't have to much wear on them.
Do you
have the same problem?

How old are the pads? There is usually a warning tab on the pad that will begin touching the rotor when the pads get close to needing replaced.

Just to add to this one what kind brand etc pads were they?We're they the cheapest pads you could find?The cheaper the pad the quicker the pads wear out and the noisier they will be. So did you see if the pads were worn out?

Alright the cheapest pads wear faster usually they crack also plus they make a lot more noise while stopping. That's why I use the premium pads on my car and when ever I do brake jobs for people.I personally use centric possi quite brake pads.I use to use the on the police cars and police suvs they worked great.

The bad bearing make noise while your driving and not hitting the brake. If you a bad wheel bearing you should replace it. Also is the noise coming from the front or the rear?

First thing you need to do is check the brakes where the noise is coming from.

The first thing you need to do is check those rear shoes. Also does the bad bearing have any play in it?

You could get some Emery cloth sand paper and lightly sand the rear shoes shoes to take the glaze off them. Then San the inside of the drum and clean everything up with brake cleaner.

If you only hear the noise in the rear while braking then the noise is in the shoes /drum somewhere. You can't hear that bad wheel bearing while driving?
