when im driving over any surface that is not very smooth then it will squeak, if it hits a stone or a catseye it will squeak, but it wont do it if i hold the brakes on a little bit, its very embarrasing because it is loud and annoying. could it be the brakes or bushes or something else, anybody else had this annoying squeak?

I get the exact same thing in my rear right. It's been s**t me for ages now. I only really notice it when I go over cats eyes tho, but it is REALLY noticable.

Take off your rotors and put a small smear of grease around the back on the plate and on the edge but no too much.

I just had all rotors and pads changed less than a month ago. I asked them to grease everything up and told them about the rattle. They reckon they couldn't find it but put grease on everything that moved... It still squeaks

lol my bad, Cause when ur on the brake he said it stops, and I figure because the rotor is being held by the caliper so theres no play or any type of movment.

I wouldnt apply grease to "lip" as shown in bottom pic as if any does spin out onto braking surface it will damage (glaze) the brake pads and reduce braking power. I did however find if grease is applied to the inner surface where rotor meets axle it did stop a squeek the same if not similar to what the problem has been described. See pic that i borrowed sorry!
