Put caliper pin lube on the slide pins and outter pad backing. For the rears also use it on the contact points where the outter pad slides on the H-clip. A few guys here suggested that over the brake queit crap and they were right! It works awesome, only downside is that it's pretty expensive

Speaking of pad backings...which pads are you using and do they have a backing plate?

cheap brake pads will squeek reguardless.. I found out the hard way. I would get some performance friction pads. NICE and quiet

agreed with blingin.

Squeek could also be due to glazing on the rotors. Hit them with a little sandpaper and see if it goes away.
