I haven't ridden since but you think that the grease solved the problem?

Theres still some squeaking I think it's a combo of the disc being dirty and the calipers needing to be replaced.. I went ahead and got some Permatex Disc Brake Lube that will be here tomorrow.. Gonna cover the front and back discs and see if this cures the squeaking ! The grease on the pins definitely helped

Thanks for your help!

As long as the calipers aren't seized and are not leaking, you don't need new ones. Even if they are leaking you can replace the piston seals. A little brake noise when applied is not that serious as long as the pads are free and the disk is not heating.
Squealing can be caused by glazed pads. You can wipe the pads with sandpaper to knock off the glaze and clean the disk with disk cleaner. A TINY amount of silicon grease on the steel back of the pads can eliminate the squeal. Don't get any grease or lubricant on the disk.

Help! I tried rubbing the silicone grease off the disc with my gloves but I don't see the issue.

I'm receiving http://www.amazon.com/Permatex-24110.../dp/B000HBNV6W tomorrow for discs and calipers..
