I had the same problem with mine at about 20000 miles,took it to dealer and they told me it was a common problem for the mounting bushing for the caliper to go bad.Dealer replaced them and less than 5000 miles later had same problem,they ordered new brackets with new bushings to mount calipers and have had no problems since at 41000 and still have original pads and rotors have not been turned. Don't know if they will do anything after warrantee but mounting bushings are easy to replace and not expensive.

This can be several different things. First, I would make sure that the rotors were not turned down too much (check the spec's & use a caliper), this could cause them to overheat during braking and create a chaddering effect. I would also make sure that the rear brakes are fully adjusted, so that they are doing their share of braking and not putting the entire load on the front brakes. Then I would flush the brake fluid and check the wheel bearings for wear or lack of grease...

I have had this same problem on two difference vehicles both of which are suburbans.
The solution is simple.
Remove the engine cover.
Locate a small ground wire that is bolted to the top rear of the engine block on the passenger side.
Remove the bolt, clean surfaces and replace.
This should solve your problem.
I know it seems too easy but it works.

First you have to remove the caliper and then the wheel bearing. If you don't know how to do that, I can provide details for that too. After the caliper and wheel bearings are off, the hub and disk will slip off the spindle. I believe the hub and the disk on the 2007 are separable. Call a brake service center, they can sell you the parts or refer you to a local distributor.

Check for clearance between the rotor and the caliper,and caliper to the rim.Make sure one ,or more of the brake pads where not accidently put on backwards,with the metal on the rotor,it happens sometimes.
