Default brake issues

ok i bought my truck used 06 ram quad cab 1500 4x4 hemi with the factory 20s. i bought this truck at 86,000. first thing i did was replace shocks, brakes and rotors, rotors was warped. also replaced ball joints. now i do tow trailer and know that can affect it some. but i need new front brakes after 32,000 miles. i got the mid grade brakes for it. is this common these trucks to eat front brakes?

also i can rock truck from side to side and hear squeking noise. like a bushing bad. i replaced upper bushings on control arm already but still squeks.

for the squeking check the sway bar bushings, now dose you trailer have its own brakes on it? also you may want to check the back brakes on the truck most braking systems are 70% front and 30% rear
