As a last resort....maybe the easiest. There are products on the market (liquid) that you coat the friction surface of the pads or shoes. I've used various brands over the years....some work well, but need to be reapplied every so often. The stuff soaks into the friction material.

Other similar stuff is applied to the rotors/drums. That stuff is pretty useless as it just gets wiped off. Problem brake squeak can be hard to solve.....sometimes involves replacing perfectly good pads.

There is a brake pad coating that is uses when applying new brake pads, they sell them at autozone individually for about a buck to a 6oz bottle for abour 2-4 bucks... I don't remember what the brand was called though so your on you own with that one.

If its only coming from the back, it may be excess brake dust built up in the drums. As it has no real way to escape. This was the case with my '05.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the brake dust.... I had that happened on my 95 Escort with squeaking brakes and it was excessive dust, I just took the airgun and just blew all that garbage out and it was like a dream now....

IDK maybe try that, it's so you won't spend alot of money yet.
