You may want to switch over to a better brake pad like ceramics...a bit more $ but they may last longer. Generally, brakes should last longer than 10 months but sometimes the system needs to be modified a bit to accommodate your driving habits.
Ask to have someone from the shop drive with you and point out the noise to them. This will establish that there is a problem. Clunking noise generally stems from a component with too much freeplay, allowing it to travel enough to "hammer" when it finally reaches a point where it has to stop. This applies to a worn universal joint, space between gears (called lash), as well as any component attached externally to the differential, such as control/sway bars etc. These can all be visually checked and verified as good or bad.
Changing the diff fluid at 12,000 miles isn't a bad thing, but likely you could stretch it to two year intervals (unless you tow or off road frequently)
You can do this yourself for less than $20. and it is not difficult or complex.

How much is it to fix rear brakes only? On a 2007 chevy tahoe

Fix is very vague - new pads? Usually $60 for the premium pads plus $50-60 for laber.

If the rotors need to be turned (I always recommend when replacing pads) usually $8-$10 to turn each rotor.

So, to add it all up, you'll spend around $125-$150 for a rear brake job. A part time handyman/mechanic could do it for less than a hundred.

Bootscooters@my 1998 s10 blazer keeps wearing out pads on the left rear, after replacing both roaters and both sets of pads.

Sounds like u need to replace your brake caliper on that side. It's engaging but not totally disengaging causing it to wear so fast. Replace the caliper and brake pads and have your brake fluid flushed. At the end make sure they "bleed your brakes". then enjoy many happy miles on the road my friend. A good honest automotive repair shop will, bleed and flush the brake fluid for little to no cost. If your getting them to replace the caliper and pads.

Brakes suddenly started grinding on one side. can see scraping on plate that surrounds brake

YOU NEED TO CHANGE OUT THE BREAK PADS, ALSO YOU MOST LIKELY DESTROIED YOUR ROATER...Do not just change out only one roater even if the other side looks good. overtime the roaters where down if you replace only one side it will pull to that side.....After you have new ones installed if the truch feals like it is pulling all the time to the same side you are haveing probleams with then most likely you will need a new wheel cylender also....Good luck I hope this helps

After purchasing my 07 trailblazer 6 months ago, should I be putting on all 4 new brakes, rotors, calipers, brake lines and a pulley?

I could see replacing the brake pads, if they are worn, but the other things, I think I'd get a second opinion. Usually by around 60,000 miles you'll need front pads, 90,000 miles, rear pads. I would ask whoever is doing the work to be shown the parts that need to be replaced.

How to change rear brake pads for a honda 2007 ridgeline

The 2007 Honda Accord is equipped with four wheel disk brakes. Disk brakes wear down and require regular maintenance. Worn brake pads can cause squeeling and grinding noises, as well as reduced braking power. Improperly maintained brake pads can cause damage to the brake rotors as well as brake failure. Save on labor costs by replacing your own brake

My 1998 Chevy Silverado shimmys under moderate

I had this same problem with a nissan titan I had. The final resolve to the problem was the stock rotors were undersized. once bigger rotors got put on the problem went away for good. I drove it 2 more years without issue.

rather than replacing them you can turn them for about $10 each. IF you do not replace brake pads they will be doing the same thing again in about 4-6 months.

all repair shops turn rotors prior to changing brake pads.
