    Alright, I have had enough of this high pitched squel when I am backing up and braking at the same time. It is a god awful noise that I want fixed. I have taken the brakes apart and cannot find the problem. Please if anyone has any suggestions, that would be great. I have a 04 toyota tacoma 4x4 DC. The only other problem that I have is the clunk that I get when i come to a stop. For that I am going to take apart and regrease it. Alright please have some ideas. I forgot to mention that I am stationed in Italy, so parts are limited. Thanks everyone.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Dose it ever make the noise when your off of the brakes and backing up or only when your on the brakes and backing up?

    I can't say I know what is causing the squel, but have you gone under your truck and checked some of the drive components like the drive shaft, rear diff.? You may wanna try finding the zerk fittings and lube up your drive shaft. Check the torque of the bolts on your drive shaft to the rear diff., change your rear diff. oil and check the gears, rebuild your rear brakes, trans. oil change.

    That may help out but also look and see if anything is out of the ordinary. Maybe someone else can chime in that knows more than me. Or just take it in and see what they can find.

    Sometimes it's just a bunch of dust built up. Clean all the brakes really good. Hope that's all it is.:)

    it is definatily coming from the rear brakes. it also does it when i back up and pull the emergency brake. So i know it has something to do with the brakes.
