Exclamation Unknown Squeaking? HELP!


So to start, I have a 2004 Ranger XLT. It has 87000 on it and its been treated pretty nice. Just recently it has started to squeak when i drive it. it sounds like its coming somewhere from the rear axle. I included a picture of the inside of my Rear drum breaks. Im stuck here... I have no clue. Any ideas?

P.s. sorry if this is in the wrong forum section.

i would start by cleaning the brakes really well with some brake cleaner and adjusting them up good and driving it to see if the sound goes away.

U-Joints in the drive shaft will squeak. Mine went out at about that. Usually its the rear fronts that go first I believe. I'd change them both though and get it out of the way.
