Default chirping noise coming from 07 tahoe

i have a "chirping" noise that sounds like its coming from the front right tire area when i drive. it gets faster as i accelerate but can only be heard at low speeds. my mechanic took off the wheels and said that the brakes and wheel bearing are all in good condition...any ideas what this could be?

ok, so it's only when you are moving?

does it go away when you step on the brakes?

I'm gonna go with likely the brakes then. I'd replace the pads. unless they are like brand new... might also have the rotors checked see if they need turned...

how long/many miles have the current pads been on?

brakes have less than 5k on them...wondering if the rotors were not cut last time brakes were changed and if so could that make the noise

man hard call. the only thing I can think of is if the rotors were warped and wore down that area of the pad and the scraper is getting into part of the rotor... I guess you could pull the pads and try to eyeball them to see, but if you can't tell there the only way would be to pull the rotors and have them mic'd, it'd be the only way to know "for sure" it ain't the brakes...

do you feel a pulsing in the brake pedal under braking (esp hard braking)?

nytahoecop07, have you ever gotten an opinion from your dealership to see if they might have a bit more insight into this issue or are you looking to fix this on your own at this point? Thank you.
