IF the Pad is in backwards that could happen.
This has happened to me twice. First time Autozone sold me the wrong brake pads. The ones they sold me fit a suburban which I assume has a slightly larger rotor. The part number is the same for my GMC truck except it is a -1 or -2 which was the difference. This year I had Pep Boys do my brakes and as I left the repair center my brakes grinded when I stopped. The mechanic scratched his head but he discovered the same problem that the pads his parts counter had given him were for a suburban. He installed the correct truck pads and problem solved. You may want to check your part number and see if this is what happened to you. The suburban pads were slightly taller and this produced the grinding.
Are you Breaking when you get the grinding sound? Or attempting to switch to 4 wheel? Most common grinding sound I know is a worn out brake pad tearing up a rotor. Time for a brake job. New rotors and quality pads can be had for about 150 if you do the labor yourself.
the noise could be coming from either a bad wheel bearing or something wrong in front axle.

Depending on the what type of car or truck could be the brakes or rotors low brake fluid, or the boot is open and its gone dry, wheel bearings. hope this helps
u gotta use the clutch m8
Had same problem with mine, if you turn right and it grinds, the left hub bearing is going out and vice versa. The weight of the truck is placed on the bad bearing the opposite way you turn. Should sound like a grind but it is a consistent "noise""quiet""noise""quiet".
It could be a broken brake pad binding and grinding. I wouldn't drive it too far without pulling things apart and finding the source.
The truck has 4 wheel disc brakes for stopping. There is a small hub on the rear disks for the parking brake shoes to engage. www.trailvoy.com
Check the rear brake shoes, they self adjust in reverse.
Depends on which part of the truck the noise is coming from. Could be an u-joint, a wheel bearing, a failed transfer case......
If the noise changes pitch under acceleration and deacceleration I would suspect the carrier bearings or pinion bearings are shot. If there is no change under acceleration or deacceleration I would suspect an alxe bearing is shot.
A grinding, snapping or dragging sound coming from breaks can be a sign that new breaks need to be put on. if the brake pads have been used after being worn out the rotors can become grooved and even warpedI have a 1995 f150 and I had a grinding noise and it was the front wheel bearings. not a hard job if you have the manual for the truck and bearings are fairly cheap. if it's more of a squeeling then it's the answer above.
If the grinding sound seems to be coming from the speedometer and grinds faster as your speed increases, the likely cause is the speedometer cable. At least some 1990 Dodge trucks (mine) have electric speedometers Len
A stock emergency brake, on a Chevrolet truck, can be released by manually disengaging the emergency brake. This can be accomplished by loosening the tension nut on the brake.

Depends on the vehicle and braking system. In a commercial vehicle, the brakes are designed specifically for stopping a loaded vehicle, and an unloaded truck can actually require more stopping distance than a loaded truck.
A thin film of rust/corrosion devolops on the brake rotors when the truck sits overnite. This causes minor squeak the first time the brakes are applied when shifting into drive.
Where is the brake light switch for 2003 hd Chevy truck As far as I know, all brake switches are on the top of the brake pedal arm.
Remove the serpentine belt (make note of the routing, maybe even take a picture) then spin the water pump to see if any grinding noise comes from there. The idler pulleys and alternator are far more common for making that noise. All bearings should be turning smoothly when you turn them by hand. Any irregular resistance or even the slightest noise while you're turning it by hand will be converted to loud noise while the engine is running.
on the brake pedal
This one is easy. Brake booster diaphragm is ruptured, causing a massive vacuum leak, which will cause the engine to run poorly when the brakes are applied. A loss vacuum assist will make it difficult to stop the vehicle.
the parking brake on caterpillar dump truck is spring applied and pressure released
you have a bad abs wheel speed sensor or miss matched tire sizes
humming noise is a bad ground to the radio. you may have a loose connection. connect a ground wire to frame of truck.
air coming out of the brake lines... that is if its a truck. if you aply the parking brake.
