hey guys i have noticed recently that when i apply the brakes coming up to an intersection to stop, when i then drive off it sounds like i may have a brake dragging cause it makes a saueeking sound from the rear of the car? could it be as simple as this? and what can i do to fix it?

sounds like you need new brake pads if they are new did they have dust grooves

did you check the shims that go around the pad? there is a tab that folds over to hold the shim in place, this may have moved.

whoops, sorry, i was thinking of the shims in the VE... but i'm pretty sure you have shims in there somewhere... see if they are rubbing.
