Need help with squeaking sound!

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, so hello to all! I've got a 2012 Wrangler, with a 4 inch lift, and 35's. Okay, so I've got this squeaking/squealing noise coming from the front end somewhere. It's there when I'm driving down the road between 5 mph - 45 mph. When I press the brakes down harder it goes away, but if I'm light on the brakes, it's a lot more pronounced. I've changed the rotors and pads in the past week, as I thought something might be hanging up, but the problem persisted. I'm not really sure where to go from here, any help or starting points would be greatly appreciated! Have a great day!

when you just jack up the front - one [email protected] a time and spin the tire/wheel w/ your hand can you duplicate it? If not a stuck caliper or mud caked rotor, have you checked the axle-wheel bearing/u-joint[s] arent going South on it (it'd be a chirping/squeaking/ squealish noise.....)
more details/a video of the sound or what troubleshooting you have performed would allow us to help a but more only because thats not a lot of info to guesstimate w/ (there's quite-a-few front components that could squeak/squeal but im bettin unit-bearing,stuck caliper or ujoint just to be wrong.)
