Re: squeaking inside car
You look for a sharp and experience mechanic to pin-point this squeaky problem, this could come from many different parts of your car.
Otherwise,to resolve this you have to disassemble all your passenger side suspension system and check on all bushings, coil spring bushings, shock absorber, check on your brakes too.
wheel bearings stabilizer bushings.

probvably worn brake pads. there is a squealer on the brakes to tell you its time to change. u should hear this when your not on the brake when you push brake it goes away. 22miles is a lot on factory pads if you haven't done them yet its time
To address your first problem squeaking brakes aka "brake squeal", is most often casued by one or 2 things: "Pad vibration" or a "low brake warning sensor".
Pad vibation is usually caused by ineffective pad anti-rattling clips & hardware that allow the pads to vibrate at a super fast speed whenever the brakes are applied, thus causing a high pitch brake squeal. To correct this, replace all the pad hardware and anti-rattling clips and make sure you use a quality pad set that has anti-rattling plates attached to the backs of them. Weather conditions do affect brake squeal, that is why it seems to be worse at times.
Low brake warning sensor squeal occurs when your brake pads reach the point of replacement, the sensor attached to the pads scrapes on the rotor which produces a high pitch squealing sound to warn you it's time for new pads.
As far as your second problem goes (a knocking sound), I'll need more information about the problem before I can offer a possible cause (eg. happens on left or right turns, while going over bumps, at high or low speeds, accellerating...).
you need to find a mechanic and ask him to take a look at your rear wheel bearings, clicking is a sign one is failing, do both sides before either fails completely. and ask him to take a look at your serpentine belt tensioner, sounds like you may have an issue there also.
If it is not your brakes, or your rear shoes, being so they have been replaced, you may have a wheel bearing bad in the rear, or you may have a caliper that is not releasing pressure on the slides causing the brake to drag just a little. I think sense it is coming from the rear of the vehicle i am going to lean towards it being a wheel bearing. One more thing you can try, push the emergency or parking brake on half way when you hear the squeak not enough to lock up the brakes but enough so the brakes touch the drum. If the squeak stops then your parking brakes are you culprit!
Throughout my experience with Toyota's I have found that several times the hubcaps have made some weird noises. Try removing your hubcaps and driving your vehicle. If the noise still persists please let me know and I can ask u some questions and try to help you with your problem.
