I always had a suspicion it was something to do with the stability/anti skid, or even the ABS system. Or, it's the emergency brake system - which i know nothing about.

Also, and this should be made clear to others who are reading this thread, the noise is present when you aren't applying the brakes. Maybe i'm completely wrong and dont understand brakes, but i dont think bedding them is going to do anything for this problem.
Correct, the squeeking actually goes away when you are on the brakes... I looked into it and it does look like it is the "hill side assist" feature. BOOO!
