Brakes problem
2002 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles

MY HUSBAND REPLACED ALL FOUR BRAKES WITH UPGRADED NEW BRAKES AND ROTORS LAST YEAR.
MY CAR MAKES A SQUEALING NOISE ON THE FRONT DRIVERS SIDE. IT IS QUITE ANNOYING AND LOUD. MY QUESTION IS WHY DOES IT ONLY DO IN THE FRONT DRIVERS SIDE AND WHY. IS THERE ANYTHING WE CAN DO TO STOP THIS AND ALSO IS IT A DRIVING HAZARD?

Noise happens only when braking
, brakes should be rechecked
check pads and shims
use synthetic grease and lube contact points

New rotors should be refinish or applying brake grease or noise compound to the back of the pads
