Loud Squeaking From Rear Driverside Wheel

In the last couple days I have started hearing a loud squeaking noise coming from my rear driver's side wheel. It goes away after a few miles but starts up again every time I drive. Any thoughts on cause/ or fixes?

Here's my thread from a while back and still no resolution...does it stop when you hit the brakes?

...first off, you don't have u-joints in the rear...

secondly, I'd almost bet a small fortune that its your emergency brakes. There is a drum brake assembly inside the rotor hat - that is your parking brake. If you get any kind of dust/grime (mud) in there it will squeal badly - sounds almost like a bearing gone bad.

You might get lucky and be able to spray a high pressure hose up there to clean it out. Worst case, take of your wheel, loosen your caliper and swing it up (just like you were changing your pads) and pull the rotor off. Once you get it off, spray a bunch of brake cleaner in there.

I've done mine a few times and it works every time.
