Check wheel bearings for correct tension and brake pads..

Sounds like they need machining, the rotors may be too smooth.

i reckon you just need new pads. Pads always rest on the rotors so when you go around coners i guess the pads will press against the rotors more. So i believe the pads are worn and you need new ones imo.

squealing brakes

check your wheel bearings they are always loose. they will make your pad wear at the top more than the bottom.
