Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
If you have 4 wheel disc brakes your Emergency brakes could be rubbing. Or when you use your brakes, the brakepads could be bad.
The Emergency brakes require removing the rear rotors to inspect the E brakes. The wheel bearings usually make a noise whether you use the brakes or not. If you want to replace the rear brakes you need to remove the wheel, then the Caliper, and then the Rotor.
Since there are 2 sets of brakes in the rear, it is much easier to do the front brakes having 1 set. You can price out the job at Brake shops beforehand.
A lot of what the shops say is like Jibberish, if this is bad, if that is bad, but it is accurate. You need new Brake hardware, and shoes and pads. Calipers can be reused if they can be bled. Brake hoses and lines are Iffy, your vehicle is 10 years old, depends on Rust condition. E brake cables, may be good or bad, depends if they work.
I would not worry about the bearing until all the brake parts are accounted for.
