Chevy Malibu

Why would a Chevy Malibu 98 ring or squeal while driving whether straight turning reversing braking or speeding and also sound changes pitch when braking and usually stops?

Sounds like it might be a brake pad thickness warning sensor

that gets torqued when braking enough to move away from the rotor

only when braking forward. It would be worth pulling the wheels off

and taking a look.
