You are correct, it's not brake fluid. Check the level in your rear axle, it sounds like you have bad seals in the axles allowing the rear differential gear oil to leak inside the brake drums.
This is a heavy weight oil, 80 or 90 weight. This leakage will ruin your brake pads, and if enough leaks out, your rear differential will blow. The seals aren't expensive, but it's a lot of labor to pull everything apart to get at the seals, plus new rear brakes. My Ford ( and I'm sure your GMC) require removal of the rear axles to change the seals. Good Luck! countrycurt0

sounds like the parking brake cable is stuck on the side, the first step, and the easiest step it to locate the cable behind the tire and really spray it with "WD-40" or "PB Blaster". That is to see if the cable can become free. If that doen't work, than you have to manualy de-adjust the brakes, ny locating a small rubber plug, rectangular in shape and using a brake adjusting tool, (availabel at most auto part stores) to "turn back" the adjusting screww inside the drum.

if it is sure break fluid. then you have to change break master cylinder, if your car rear wheel drive that might be shaft oil and vibration come from a worn rear wheel bearing.
