    Could be anything. I would assume its something involving the suspension. Mine was squeaking and I found out it was the leaf springs. I sprayed them with some penetrating lubricant and its good as new. I'd say your best bet is to have somebody stand outside while you hit the brakes to help you locate the sound. I just had my dad stand outside as i drove by and that really helped me pinpoint where the sound was coming from. Good Luck. I'd save the dealership for your last resort.

    gm has a bulliton out for the leafsprings on 00 up silverados for squeeking. they say to grease the contact points. any lube should do the trick but the squeek will come back after time. just repeat

    if you have stepbars on your truck they cause a squeek from the body mounts. soak the body mounts with a superlube or wd40.

    usually all trucks squeek or groan when the frame flexes but, you should still check it out if you have warranty.
