    unfortunately no Check in the business directory and look for shops that show an accreditation sign . I would stay clear of local garages as you need specialist assistance.. Contact your local road side assist association for recommendations

I would recommend taking the vehicle to an accredited brake and clutch shop and have the pads and discs checked for thickness and condition . They will also have the correct brake fluid for the vehicle .. I would expect that you will need new pads and the discs will need machining to get the best out of the brake job. Discuss this with the service mechanic.

Some kind of lubicant coming out of center hub on back wheel. This is a 2002 Chevy Silverado truck with 77,000 miles.

that would be your axle seals, have them replaced, that fluid is gear oil, also if the oil has gotten on any of the brake parts they must also be replaced, this includes parking brake system because if fluid got on the parking brake it will also be less effective.
