2004 Chevrolet Tahoe: loud..frequency as the car speeds up

Customer Question

I have a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe. When I drive slowly I can hear a slight noise that sounds like metal running on metal coming from the rear (I believe). It's not very loud, and it increases in frequency as the car speeds up. This occurs in a straight line or turning, but sometimes when transitioning from a turn to going straight it goes away. Any thoughts?

Any thoughts on the issue I describe?


What's the best way to check the rear brakes? Should I jack it up and rotate the rear axle to see if I hear the noise?


That works too!  Thanks for the input.  Great advice.

Sorry, I See that the last reply I sent is not there, IT was to remove the wheels to check the brakes.
