Squeaky breaks?

For the past couple months my commander has been having some squeaky breaks. Usually it only does it when i first start to hit the breaks. I've been driving with it for awhile but its starting to get annoying and i really dont want to take it somewhere when there has to be something a not so mechanically intelligent guy can do to fix this. Anybody have any ideas or quick fixes?

Mine squeak as well. I wonder if the Brembos on the Grand Cherokee SRT8 will bolt on the Commander.

noise from semi-metallic pads is completely normal.

you can check to see how much material is left on the pads and make sure your rotors are smooth.

We have the same on ours. Upon rotating the tires, I looked into the problem. Sure enough, it looks like I had a rock get stuck in the brake area once as there was a shallow groove around the entire rotor. I'm not worrying about that until it's time for brakes, for now, we live with the occasional squeak.

Mine started squeaking after the recall service about six months ago and hasn't stopped since. I am going in for an inspection next week and some other warranty work so I will ask them to take a look at it. I have ~22,000 and have never towed.
