Default Creaking brake

I dont know if anyone else has come across this before, either way i could really us the insight. I developed this problem a couple of years ago shortly after i had the brakes and rotors replace. When i come to a stop and lightly apply the brakes...i can hear a loud ticking and sqeeking coming from the driver side front brake. As the truck slows eventually it switches to more of a creaking noise, until i am fully stopped. If i come fast to a stop and press harder on the brakes i dont get this noise. I myself looked at it,going straight for the kill..replacing the cheap brakes and rotors my mechanic decided to use.The problem went away for almost a day. Any ideas as to what this is and how to get rid of it would be great.
