Passenger side brakes sqeeking

Only while rolling (not while brakes are applied).. Goes away sometimes but it's really annoying, think there's just something in there or is it time to replace something?

Figured I should ask here before I make a move. Appreciate the feedback!

Check your pads usually the squeaking is a wear indicator or it could simply be a rock stuck in there

Yeah 06 but I personally have only had it a year (not sure if they've been replaced at all). Is there an easy way to tell if it's wear indicator or should I just get new pads and see if it quiets them down?

Anyone have recommendations on pad types?

^ I guess no harm in checking if there is something in there this weekend, if nothing's found guess I'll just try new pads (?)

Just pull the tire and check before you get anything new.

if you're squeeking while rolling w/o brakes, you may have a frozen caliper and may need to be replaced. and depending on how long its been doing this for you may have to replace a rotor too. but yeah, take the wheels off and see how much "meat" you have on those pads first

Is it front and rear passenger or just one of them? Not uncommon for something to get wedged between the front rotor shield and the rotor.
