If the front brakes squeak, it usually means thst they need to be replaced. A good indicator of this is brakes will stop squeaking when brakes are applied. Many reputable brake shops give free inspections Often it's just as simple as a wear indicator. Many GM vehicles have a wear indicator on the disk brake pads that make noise as a warning. You must remember its a chevy.. with just alittle dust a caprice can squeak for days.. ever hear a cop car braking? but it doesnt hurt to check the fluid level- pads- rotors. Caution- cuz if the rotors bent it could be that deffective lower ball joint..
