    Just got my rear brakes turned and new pads on, now when i'm driving i hear a squeaking from what sounds like the rear. Was doing about 75mph today with the window down next to a wall and felt like i could still hear it. When i put my foot on the break it goes away.

    Would it be a rear bearing? when you break that it moves the rear end a little bit to not make the sound? If so what bearing?

    Thanks in advanced.

    could be a pad dragging on the rotor. Take a short/fast drive and then see how hot the rotor is compared to the other side.

    I figued it was the high pitched squeel that they can make if they are dragged on glass dry but it was just an assumption.

    Pull out the slide pins and grease them up. Usually makes it much happier.
