Default Rear wheel making funny noise

I have a 00 2wd single cab. I bought the truck about two months ago and it ran great. Here recently the rear driver's side wheel makes a squealing noise when the vehicle is in motion. ( It makes that sound, when theres a piece of metal touching the front rotor, if that makes any sense.) Im pretty handy with fixing my own vehicle ,but really am confused about this. I thought maybe it had to do with the drum brake.

any help will be very appreciated.

Jesse D.

I work in mechanics shop, we have a lot of rangers come in with the bottom spring that holds the shoes together broken. Mine were broken on both sides that may be your problem if you havent figured it out already.
