    Did you grease the back of the pads? in older car they used to be a anti squeal shim installed between the pad and the piston, they don't tend to use them these days, try removing the pads and smearing copperslip grease on the back of them, avoid the pad surface of course unless you don't like stopping That should cure the problem, it's caused by the pad rubbing against the piston surface. When the car corners the centrafugral force pushes the pad against the piston but rattles it also against the disc, this is the noise you can hear.
