So I had what I thought was worn down front brakes - a high pitched whine / squeal when braking. I had just replaced my rears (which were in poor, poor shape thanks to a cross-country drive). Bought new pads, but when I went to go swap them in, I realized the Mintex Red Boxes in there were barely worn down. I went ahead and replaced them anyway, and the squeal appears to have gotten a little quieter, but is still present. I can't tell if it's the fronts or the backs.

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? To repeat, fresh pads on both the front and the back.

brake dust..some pads have a louder squeal than others.
