You need to change out your pads ,and hopefully you did not damage rotor ,if there are groves in the rotor you must also replace them

My truck is pulling to the left real bad while driving sounds like a scrubbing noise up from sway bar mount is broke but dont think that will cause it to bull as bad as it is

Brake pads are probably shot. The "scrubbing noise" is probably the metal on the brake pads eating away at your rotors. That is also why it is pulling. Get it to a brake shop QUICK....
Good Luck.

When i brake i hear a noise what can it be

You may need new brake pads, some pads have a wear indicator that will scrub the edge of the rotor and make noise when they wear to a certain point. I suggest you take to a qualified brake repair shop as soon as possible and have it checked by a professional

1997n saturn sl1 front brakes didnt need replaced but back brakes were replaced. horrendous scrubbing noise still there- no leaks from brake fluid, are there issues with master cylinder??

Take it to another repair shop and tell them to look at the front end and figure out what is wrong. There are no mechanical parts in the master cylinder which would make a scrubbing noise. If the front pads are good, you could still have a caliper or bearing problem.

Noise coming from brakes so I replaced the brakes and rotors and now I am still getting a noice coming from that direction.

You did not specify front or back, or whether the noise happens when braking, or changes when braking...But my though is wheel bearings may be your actual issue...

When driving the suv makes this loud squeaking noise almost like the brake pads scrubbing but the brakes are good.

Check the driveshaft u-joints. They can make the noise you describe if the bearings are shot. Also, as noted on my clarification request, double check the brake wear indicators. To check the u-joints, put the trans. in neutral as you drive, the noise should disappear.

2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo has scrubbing noise coming from rear of vehicle and park brake does not engage

It sounds as though you have a frozen emergency brake cable. This usually will wear down the rear brake shoes to a point where they are metal to metal. Get them fixed asap.
