What your explaining about your brake being stiff sounds perfectly normal...Your power brake booster doesn't have any vacuum pressure. Worst case scenario you have a leak in your brake booster line...simple cheap fix. As for squeaky brakes, just replace the brake pads and possible rotors depending on there condition
