Default Right rear brake growling noise at stop?

Hello all. When I press the brake pedal on my 97 SSEi and come to the point of a complete stop the right rear wheel/brake/drum makes a loud growning/growling noise each and every stop. Now just yesterday I can hear that when I creep away from a stop very slowly, there is a growning noise though much softer,even after the pedal has been released. Any Ideas or suggestions? Funny thing my wife'* minivan has started doing the same thing now from a rear drum as well.

Thanks,

-Jason

Your should pull the wheel and drum off and inspect for damage. A spring or brake part could have come loose and is lodged in the shoe.

I have a simular problem on my 2000 bonneville when I stop but not everytime I stop. right rear wheel and it has a growling sound. I replaced the caliper, rotor, and brake pads. now I'm thinking of doing the axle bearing. not sure what else it could possibly be. any suggestions?

Does the car seem to come to a sudden stop or stick when you take off?

Please start a new thread if your having problems. This thread is 4 years old. Also, the rear brakes on a 97 are drum brakes and you have disk, very different set up.
