Squeaking sound from right front possible strut or brake problem

Hey Guys,

I really need some insights...

I have been having this problem for sometime, did the basic tests myself, took it to a import shop and they thought it was the struts/shocks, but that seemed fine. They werent sure where the squeaking sound was coming from.

Well today while driving my regular route home , i noticed that when i press the brake and go over bumps or undulation then there is no squeaking sound, without braking there is.

Could it be my brakes? Do brakes make squeaking sounds? What could it be?

Has anyone of you'll had this problem in the past? Sometimes it gets really loud sometimes you bearly hear it, and the funny thing is if i drive on wet conditions i dont hear it at all. Could it be possible that the sound is coming becoz of worn out brake pads?

are your brake pads getting worn out?

becuase i think some pads have a wear indicator on them that makes a noise to warn you the pads are getting low.

Where exactly is the noise coming from, which end, or which side and end? The wet conditions are lubing or cleaning up the noise, not the problem. That kind of give and go noise would probably be the brakes. Bearings due make an undulating sound pretty much all the time driving. I was going to give my opinion, but you're better off taking your car to another reputable place and explain to them your problems.
