    Truck has a funky squeaking sound. I know it has something to do with the brakes. The sound goes away when I hit the brakes a good amount. Plus it fells like I have a good case of the death wobble. But the truck only shacks sometimes. It kind of fills like the driveshaft is coming loose. But the drive shaft is tight I just got new u-joints and fasteners. It is wet outside it has been raining for like 3 days.

    GM brake pads have a little metal finger that scrapes the rotor when the pads are nearing end of life. They make the most noise when your foot is off the brake pedal...

    Time for new brake pads. :cool1:
