I'm having the same problem, checked the pads today and they look fine. I have about the same mileage too, 22k. Did new pads fix it? Also I remembered today how much I hate drum brakes.

Haha I had that plate on my first car

Yep fixed it. I have discs all around :-P

If your pads are good( mine were in excellent shape) you could always take them out and grease the dirty parts..I put new pads on just the front, came with new clips, and greased everything. All quiet now

Changed the heater control resistor and the IAC module. Man it idles a lot better. Heater works as it should now. Thanks to all the valuable info on here I was able to diagnosis and fix each problem. Going to fix the hubs tomorrow.

What year is your truck? Or did you do a disc conversion in back? I'd love to someday. I did grease it up and bang some rust out and it hasn't squealed yet but I only drove it maybe 20 miles today.

Well it's been a while, I'll just list all I've done. I installed retrofit projectors, running morimoto 35w ds2 5ks. I removed my valance (it broke of while offloading) and I installed a black bull bar.

Switched an old oval over to black and installed it on the grille. Just used the 3M molding tape. Hoping it stays on there until I find a better solution.




Need to take some rubbing compound to it to clean up the scuffs.

Washed it, filled it up, then went and bought some running lights for the toolbox, some gas line antifreeze, and fuel Line disconnects.

Gave it a well overdue wash, filled it up, and began to fix my paint issues, and the bumper, it's pretty ugly.
