Default Skeaky brakes....any help

My brakes make noise (skeaky) mainly the first few stops I make. Doesn't do it all the time. The car stops good...any ideas? Do I need to replace anything?

front? if the pads are still pretty meaty and it really bugs you, you might want to put some of this on the back of the pads.

I may try something like that. They don't shutter or shake at all

Need to have them checked. If they are worn out the squeaker will make noise to save you a rotor.

Your not saying if you have drum brakes on the rear or if the noise is definitely coming from the front or back. If from the back, it might be built up brake dust inside the drum and needs to be taken off and all the dust blown away. Be careful, it's probably toxic so you don't want to blow it towards anyone. I had that problem till I swapped shoes.

I figured that, but they don't make noise some days and other times it does. It doesn't shutter at all, the car stops good??? The pads don't look bad either

Is the noise is related to humidity? If so, changing pads/pad material might help.

It could be humidity related, not sure...it didn't make a noise while driving it this weekend. It was rainy & damp.
