Default 2000 Camry Squeak-202,000kms

Alright, I have another question. Today for the first time ever, the
front drivers side tire started squeaking as the car was driving. It
did it as soon as I pulled out of the driveway. The only time it stops
is when I press the break. It kinda goes away above 60 kph, but I
can't be sure as the wind noise may drown it out. Anyone had an
experience like this before. Its not grinding which should mean that
my disk is ok, but someone mentioned that it may be a wheel bearing.
But why would the sqeaking stop if the breaks are on? I just spent
almost $900 to have front end work done. Any help would greatly be
appreciated!

Possible stuck caliper. The pad doesn't move away from your rotor when
you release your brakes. My guess is that corrosion of the caliper bore
causes the piston to get stuck. The fix would be to replace the caliper
or clean your caliper bore and replace the seals. To test for this, jack
up the tire and give the brakes a hard push and then try turning the
tire to see if the pads are rubbing.

Yeah, thats what it was. Because the break pads were stuck on the
rotor, I have to replace both rotors, 1 caliper and all of the break
pads in the front...
