    Anyone good w/ cars?

    I have a 2000 pontiac firebird with a squeal in the rear end, sounds like the driver's side. It squeals when i brake, but also some when i turn, and even some when i'm just cruising.

    What could that be?

    I'm no expert, but possibly a shot wheel bearing?

    Your brakes are probably on the warning sensors.

    That is the most technical description for those things I have ever heard. I just always called them squeakers.

    I call brakes, calipers, rotors, retaining clips, lines, pistons, everything = damn brakes.
