    Is it normal to always hear a mild clank or click sound comming from the rear wheels when you start to apply the brakes while backing into a parking spot? Also, every time I back down my driveway and then put it into drive theres always a soft rrrrrrrr sound is this also normal? I'm driving a 2007 automatic, 2WD Prerunner with 52,000 miles on it. Thanks to anyone who replys.

    The "Clank" sound you hear is the brake pads shifting. Its normal. Not sure about the wiiiring sound.

    I have this noise too. It always happens upon the first application of the brakes.

    I have this noise as well, and took it to the dealer. They said it was the caliper and the brake rotor/pad shifting around. They replaced the caliper, rotor and pads on both sides. That was back in january and the noise/problem came back in the spring. I've grown just to ignore it. I also told them about the tsb about the rear leafs, and they just greased them instead of replacing them. Oh well, i plan on getting dakars anyway. The dealer is DCH Toyota in Freehold,NJ.

    Yep - calipers w/ loose pads - the other thing you may hear, with the same root cause, is rattling of the pads as you go over bumps.
