I would think that your parking brake cables and/or the park brake pivots may be seized. It appears that your rear brakes are being kept on by one or both of the abovementioned problems.

sounds like time for new rear brakes. The local parts store should be able to hook you up with parts and tools. If you aren't car savvy you should also be able to buy a Hayne's manual which will help you with the procedure of the replacement. I recommend getting new wheel cylinders at the same time, especially on an 88 as they are probably worn out. You should also take the drums to a local shop to get them machined. Remember, the most important rule of doing brakes is to only take one side apart at a time so you can look at the other side for reference.

I have 2005 toyota camry v4. I serviced my drum brakes 1 month back and since then it started making same clicking noise as I slowed down the car. The frequency of the click depended on the speed of the car. I got drums turned at Oreilly auto parts, swapped those drums from left to right and also changed the springs, the noise did not go away. I noticed though it was coming from only one wheel. Finally, i did visual inspection of both drum brake assembly to see why one is making noise and not the other one. I found that the spring that goes over the star wheel was touching the star wheel in the problem wheel. I took the screw driver and bent the spring in such a way that it did not touch the star wheel. The noise stopped coming. I am still watching it though. I will update again if I see something develop. I hope this helps other members on this forum. Good luck.
