97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied

I have a 97 Chevy S10 that has a rear end squeek that sounds like it is coming from the brakes but goes away when the brakes are applied. Looked at the pads and drums all seems okay and looked at the u joints they look fine also. Sanded the pads and still have the squeek.

If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy silverado 1500 front brakes are squeeking

on disc brakes there is a metal marker on them that when the pads get low on material it will make a squeeling noise to let you know its time to change the pads.. so I would say you are in need of front pads also even though they look good you are getting low.. this marker is designed to let you know its time before you get to metal to metal .. jerry

Winding sound from front on chevy 4wd s-10


I have a 97 chevy s10 4x2. I also have a winding sound coming from the same area. I believe it could be one of two things or both, water pump, power steering pump. keep in mind depending on the size motor you have, the 4.3l vortec wich is what I have and the v8 has a natural winding sound to them in that area. you will know a difference when that winding sound becomes more of a needed replacement part. good luck

Try spraying the calipers and pads with brake clean usually the squek is from brake dust build up. The caliper slides are the only places where high temp. synthetic caliper grease is used try that as well.
