Might be brake pads rubbing on the caliper piston when driving slow, if so that can be cured by a smear of some high temp grease, such as copperslip, on the rear of the pads and or anti squeal shims.

+1

Also it might be worth checking when the callipers are off to that the piston are in good condition and are free and not sticking.
Also if your brake fluid has not been changed for a while it's worth getting that done to.

Hope this helps

Hi there, check your brakes, and get a file and take the top edge off of all the pads and also check for any play in your wheels, It could be possible you could have a bad wheel Bearing just starting to let go
