    Ok My brakes have been squeaking very loadly ..(like metel to metel) So I bought some new shoes and took the drums off and the pads have a lot of meat left (look almost new)
    No gouging in the drums or any of that type of thing..
    It looks like the axle shaft seal might be leaking or the wheel cyl ..
    Would that cause the horrible sound..Or any other ideas.. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    BTW it is a 1989 C1500 2wd pickup.. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Are you sure its the rear making the noise? It may be the front wear indicators touching the rotors. You definately need to fix whatever is leaking in the rear though. Does the rear have lots of brake dust in the shoes and drums, if so brake dust can make a nasty squeak. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you are getting fluid on the brakes, they will lock up EXTREMLY easily once they warm up.

    I've had contaminated pads before, they didn't make any noise, except the tire sliding when I applied the brakes. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
