weird breaking noise

whats up guys for about the last few months my truck has started makin this real weird noise when ever i am on the breaks and now its gettin to the point were i need to do something. i always hear it when i am about half way on the breaks. i can hear two different sounds that come from it. sometimes it sounds almost like the shocks are skreetching and other times i can hear a real loud clicking noise... it started with just on the left side but i can hear it from both sides now. i just did my breaks 4 months ago but i took off the pads and the rotors just to make sure it wasnt them and i couldnt see anything wrong with them at all. any imput will help i know its hard to describe a sound and even harder to figure out the problem but anything will help.. thanks guys

check the wheel bearings, TRE's... make sure everything is nice and snug under the truck.

i dont hear it when im turning only when im on the breaks. if i hit a bump everything sounds fine. i have a feeling it might be the wheel bearings. about a month ago the left one made a real bad noise for a day then stopped so think there just goin bad...

Sorry to do this, but its brakes. not breaks.

And if it's the wheel bearings, the noise would happen whenever the wheels are moving. Wheel bearings also making a grinding noise if they are bad, listen for a little bit of a growl when you're driving next time.
