Sounds like the drums are warped. Replacing the drums would be the best option. Getting them turned MIGHT fix the problem.

I agree. And if the rear brakes are all factory from 2001, it is probably about time for a lot of other things to be replaced back there. I just had both rear brakes rebuild and replaced back in September. It was all factory from 2003 and it was all shot. There was stuff broken in there that I didn't even know was broken.
