Default Squeaking Front Brakes!!

I have a 2003 with 15,000+ miles on it. When I bought it in October 2002, I noticed a squeaking noise coming from the front brakes, but it would stop once the system warmed up. I had them checked at 11,500 and they were at 80%. The squeaking has gotten progressively worse. Will changing the brakes pads stop this? HELP!!! Am I alone?[:I]

I too had the sqealing and large amounts of brake dust from the OEM brakes that Chrysler uses. I put up with it for 30,000 miles (which didn't take long because of long distance traveling). After I installed a new set of pads, everything (dust & squealing) went away.
