Squealing Noise

Sometimes when I'm driving at a slow speed (~20mph), I would hear this weird squealing noise coming from the front of the front of the car. And when I gradually brake to a stop, the squealing gradually diminishes and stops. Anybody can help me pinpoint the problem? Thanx.

Does the squealing stop if you apply the brakes ?
If so its the wear squeakers.
If not check you disc brake dust shields, sometimes they rub against the wheel or disc.

My NX brake upgrade is fine. did you cut and bend the dust shield away from the bigger rotor ?
Still on the Sentra master cylinder, I think its OK, and mine is smaller than SER and for rear drums, I have rear discs now as well.
