Default Squeaky parking brake

I set my parking brake while my Equinox is parked in my garage and have noticed that when I sit in it with the brake on, it will squeak. It does not do this when the parking brake is NOT in use. Is this something that can be lubed up to stop the squeaking?

My first thought would be to remove the hub and apply dust cleaner or brake lube. How many miles do you have on your Nox?

However, I would expect it to squeak if you moved while it was engaged!

87,XXX miles on it right now. Just had service done and brakes are good. It's not a big deal, just something that is a bit annoying.

I remember having a s-10 in the fleet that always had a squeak with new brakes or not.
