Avid BB5 Help

Hey guys. I posted a thing about the BB5's rubbing and making some noise a month or so ago. The rubbing is no problem now but this damn squeaking noise is ridiculous. If the tire is moving at a mph or so its makes a squeaking noise like an old door. I've taken it to my LCB twice already and each time I leave it sounds fine but after a couple miles of riding its back. I just bought the bike a month or two ago. What should i do? Its a trek 6000

Thanks dude. That worked fantastically for the front tire. Its never been better. The back tire is the one making the damn squeaking noise and I think I may actually have a slightly bent rotor. The noise is only happening when it reaches one spot on the rotor now. I'm gonna take it to the shop tomorrow to see what the options are and what they think. But thanks so much for the link man, when I get the rotor fixed that will be perfect.
