That depends on how, when and where it is squealing. For example, if the brakes squeal when applied, the brake pads are probably worn down. A squeal from the engine compartment whenever the engine is running could be a loose serpentine belt (especially if the squeal changes a little when you rev the engine).

What would cause a squealing noise from front end of 1995 Camaro that is quieter when brakes are applied?

Start with the most likely andeasiest to fix. Check your brake pads... There is a wear indicator on the inside pads (closest to engine) that will rub on the rotor and make a squealing noise to warn you that the pads are getting thin. When you apply the brakes the noise will go away a lot of the time. If the pads are new or not making the noise then I do not know what the problem may be.

Why does our 1997 k2500 have low brake pedal only when 350 motor is running?

Pedal pumps up fine, but when you run the engine, the brake booster applies more force to the lines. Thus compressing any air that may be in there. You will need to bleed the brakes more. I sometimes bleed the brakes with the engine running to correct this.

The issue here sounds like it's the master cylinder failing. It is not retaining pressure when the engine is running. The reason they feel fine when the engine is not running is because the failing master cylinder is not getting power, and in essence is being bypassed.
