I would make sure the calliper pins are not corroded and properly lubed.
I had a deal on one of my taurus where i had some brake noise.
It turned out the aftermarket pads were slightly too big and
the rotor wore a grove in them and i had some chatter when the
grove got wore in deep enough.
The rears is would make sure the emergency brake is not dragging
and the shoes are properly adjusted.
