Most brake squeals are caused by vibration of the pad on the contacting surface not the friction surface. Using a quality ceramic pad if possible will help with brake noise but also lubricating the contact points in the caliper slides will go far in eliminating squeals. To the OP problem from what you are describing sounds like a backing plate rubbing a rotor or a slide clip is moving with the pad and contacting the rotor.

jg. OEM pads are not made by the OEM Only to their specs.(I believe) Premium pads are quite better Wagner/Bendix Ect. I think you meant Brembo on your vehicle also good choice as long as you go with their best,

Tfort, yes, we have tried adjusting and lubercating the backing plate and having something adjusted there. Sorry, I don't remember that detail. It didn't help. In fact 3 different shops including a Dodge dealership have adjusted and inspected the truck brakes. I do have tires and brakes serviced with every oil change.I am a stickler for preventive maintenance so this brake is driving me nuts! I will ask about replacing pads and then move to the calibers I guess.Thanks did the suggestions, I appreciate it!
