Could be the rear Emergency brakes are binding. Jack up the rear of the vehicle, put it in neutral and attempt to turn the rear wheels by hand.
You do not have to use the Emergency brakes to have problems with them. The linings fall off the metal shoe and bind up on the turning drum within the rear rotor. Then when the direction of rotation changes, the remaining brake linings regroup and jam the other way.
Sometimes the loose lining jams into small bits, pulverized, and sometimes form large chunks that jam the brakes.
Another potential problem you can check with the rear wheels off the ground and in neutral is the U-joints on the driveshaft. Popping is a symptom of play in the joints. Binding is a possibility but the joint is close to breaking at this point.
