    both of my other Rams do that. My 07 2500 and my 12 3500. One has 127,000 miles one has 70,000. They both have had the brakes checked and they have both been said the brakes are perfectly fine twice lol. i think its just Ram brakes in general. Both of mine always make noise, mainly when Im coming to a stop.

    You could have a little bit of dirt or grit between the rotor and the pads which would make it sound like the brakes are metal to metal......

    Have you lubricated them lately?

    Seriously, mine make a heck of a squawking/groaning noise when backing down my steep driveway. I don't notice anything on straight away stops.

    Mine seem to do the this too, but usually after it sits for a day after rain/snow. I was thinking it was from a small amount of rust on the rotor face, my sound is asymmetrical, so I figured the resting place of the pad built up a touch more, after driving for a few miles the noise on mine goes away.

    I initially thought it was from being wet, sitting in my garage overnight, but it does it when they are dry too. I had a '12 1500 and they never did that. It is more of a nuisance than anything. Wasnt sure if it was a waste of time to complain about it to dealership or not.
