Most brake calipers have shims that sit between the pads and the calipers them selves that brace the pads and keep them from vibrating against the caliper. If your shims are gone that might account for the squealing. You can also address this problem by putting high temperature silicon lubricant on the pad backing plate wherever it touches the caliper.

What would cause a squealing sound from drivers side wheel that is not brakes?

More info: 87 Crown Victoria 5.0 engine The sound is coming from the drivers side wheel vicinity and can be heard better when the window is rolled up (less outside noise to drown it out?) It does not occur when standing still. The sound is cyclical according to how fast I am going. It squeals faster as the car speeds up and like wise slows down when I do. It is not likely the brakes as it is not a high pitched whine like the brakes and makes the sound when not braking. It was faint a few days ago but is steadily getting louder.
