So ever since I put on new brakes, they have been pretty squeaky.  The strange part is that my front driver wheel almost always squeaks a little when letting off of the brake from a stop.  Some of the other wheels will squeal while stopping or slowing.  Every so often, my front passenger brake will screech SUPER loudly.  I mean it sounds like it's next to my head but I have the windows up and the radio on.  It only does this until I let off the brake and reapply it.

What is the easiest, cheapest way to fix my brakes? I have FWD and 2 month old brakes all around and rotors up front.

They actually sell brake pad lube/grease at auto parts stores. You apply it to the points where the brake pads and calipers meet up.

I saw that at AutoZone when I was buying the brakes.  Where exactly do you apply it?

Wherever you have metal to metal contact between the brake pad and the caliper. I'd also recommend a can of brake parts cleaner to prep everything.
