    Yeah...I'd take a look in there and clean them out. Because in 28K miles there is NO way you should have been in your rear brakes enuf to wear them out.

    If you are you are braking WAY to hard or have poorly adjusted rear brakes.

    Mine squeal like hell after setting all night in damp weather & I back out the drive in the morning. I have 38k on them & check them regularly & they still look great, but the squeal is loud as hell, but goes away quick as soon as the moisture dries. Probably one of my biggest complaints about the Taco is no rear discs.

    yea its not moisture for sure it does it all day. its like a shh shh shh shh sound, lol hard to describe. but the sound your brakes make when u need new pads is pretty much how it sounds.

    just a couple comfort items.
    I once had a retainer spring break and a piece of it was barely scraping the drum. Sounded just like that. Never did find the retainer that holds the spring in place. Good luck!

    well sorry for the delay. i have not been at the comp in a couple days. i took the drums off sunday. i didnt find anything wrong actually i sprayed em down with some brake cleaner and wiped it al down the noise has been gone so im hoping it was just excess brake dust. time will tell.

    I just removed my drums at 28,000 miles

    I found mounds of brake dust in there

    Sprayed everything down with break clean,lightly sanded shoes and inside of drums contact surface,sprayed with brake clean again,wire brushed outside of drums and painted drums flat black

    No more noise...

    and they look pretty now:p
