Squealing/squeaking rear end

Lately I've been noticing at low speeds there's a very loud constant squealing sound that seems to only go away when I hit the brakes. It sounds like its coming from the rear drivers side of the car but not sure. I also hit a curb pretty hard about a month ago and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it but any help would be appreciated!

Sounds like you may need brake pads.
Check them first.

Sounds like you need new rear brake pads. Check your pads, they probably have no surface left. Check your rotors too.

As far as the curb issue, most likely only your suspension would be affected by that. Unless you had a complete all out accident with the curb, which I doubt lol.

I have the same thing and I let my dad drive the car around a parking lot like a week ago, it ended up being front pad although I thought it was in the rear...

Most likely. Any noise you hear, that goes away with the pressure of the caliper pushing the pads to the rotors usually is something brake related.

Real easy way to troubleshoot.

That's what I usually do. Well, I usually do pads and rotors all at once, once I finally get the pads I want and the rotors I want.

As usual budget makes the different.

I just started having the same issue. It's almost certainly the pads and I'm replacing them this weekend.
