    Hello

    Thanks everyone!!

    Well that was it !! New brake pads and the noise is gone!!

    On both front wheels, the lower pins on the calipers were rusted and stuck so heating with a torch freed them!
    Now both pins push the pads against the rotors evenly!

    So NO new calipers needed and it was a $125 dollar brake job!!

    Hello

    I wish I found this Wheel Noise chart before.

    http://www.jaxquickfit.com.au/brakes

    In this case the wear indicator would be under squeal but that is a very general category.
