Rear brakes moan on 2003 Chevrolet venture van

Both brakes moan whenever I hit the brakes. It is very loud and happens everytime I put the brakes on. I have never had them replaced. I have about 70,000 miles on them. Someone told me that she heard that they need to be power washed every so often. That seems like an easy fix, but I'm not sure if I believe it. Any help would be much appreciated...

    I believe they are drum brakes on the rear of these vans....would that make any difference in the mileage put on them for changing them?

Replace them.Ask your friends for recommendations on trusted mechanics or shops, then get them done. 70000 miles is more than enough for a stock set of brake pads.

diff noises are a harmonic whine on drive (Acceleration or drive speed )or a growl on overdrive ( slowing down or coasting)
if you have a drive shaft to the rear diff it is possible that the rear shaft has not been assembled correctly and the out of phase of the joints will give indications that you describe
Take it to a drive shaft specialist shop for a diagnosis

Replaced brake pads on my 2001 Oldsmobile aurora and now make a moaning sound at times help!

I would try to see if the shims were put on the brake pads.
Try to check if the shims off of the old brake pads are still on the old ones and see if you can put them on the new brake pads.

Right rear is making a sound of medal scraping medal. I believe it maybe the wheel bearings.

If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.
