I had the rotors and brakes replaced on Feb. 2012. My brakes are now squealing.

Wow,your vehicle should have no brake noise regardlous of age,I have a 85 Nissan 720 truck,no brake noise.If they did the brake work,take it back again and if they don't fix it right,no noise and good brakes,let them know that you will go visit the BBB,You are required to take your vehicle back three times and if still not right,The BBB.will investigate.

2002 dodge durango 2wd. brakes squeal when braking. i have had rotors and pads replaced.

There are 3 to 4 different compositions of brake pads--some are softer--others are ceramic or metallic---probably you have gotten metallic---which do have a history of squealing much of the time. therefore, check to see if that is what you purchased--if so--there is no mechanical problem. However--a tip--especially in colder, salt-using, (on streets)climates. Lubricate the brake rotor sliders with grease twice a year so they don't stick.

Have put new bracks on frond an back an they squeal an make aiot of noise

Have you went through rain puddles lately this can cause them to squeal. If this is not your problem then i would set the adjuster on the brakes.... look near the bottom of the brakes for a dial with teeth and turn them downward to set the brakes back a little.... your brakes could be set too close still. Hope this helped ;)

When backing up and sometimes turning right my brakes(?) make a squealing sound. Almost as though a pebble is caught and grinding on something. Honda 2004 accord-50.000miles. I was told I needed new brakes...

Your rear brake pads are most likely worn to the wear indicator which can make a high pitch squealing noise. It is very common that it will squeal when backing up, but not when applying the brakes. 50,000 miles is about the average life for rear brake pads on your car.

What makes you think it's brakes?

Two things, in my experience, makes brakes squeal. If you can apply brakes but they don't squeal until you are nearly stopped, that's benign. The sleeves and backing of the brake pads need some special high temperature brake grease. But you can live with it. But if you get a scraping, screeching sound whenever brakes are applied and possibly to a lesser extent even when they are not applied, then the brake wear feelers are touching the brake disk. You need to get brake pads or shoes replaced soon or cause damage.
