Rear Brake Squealing Noise

Truck is a 2011 Rock Warrior with 80k Miles. A couple weeks ago I had my pads replaced and rotors resurfaced. After that, I could hear my backing plates rubbing around turns. Grinded and hammered the backing plate and that noise is 90% gone. However, I still have a squeling in the rear brakes that only can be heard with light to moderate braking. When the brake pedal is depressed more than half way, the noise fades away. The noise also does not occur once the truck has been driven for 15-20 min.

Could this be my calipers wearing? Noise is not like the backing plate scraping noise. This is a distinct rotational squeal that only occurs with braking (backing plates would scrap around turns). Any ideas?

Re: Rear Brake Squealing Noise

Had the same issue. Banged on the backing plates and got your symptoms.

Did you check the guide pins? These should be replaced at every pad/rotor change unless they look virginal.

At $3.59 a pair at your local parts chain store itís no problem to treat those as consumables.

Changed mine out, problem gone.

I replaced my calipers and that got rid of the noise. Also had to do a lot of work on the brake shoes as they were dragging even without engaging the e brake
