Low speed squeak in rear?
I am hearing a squeak who's frequency coincides with my speed, but is only there when I'm slowing and almost to a stop, or starting off from a stop , basically anytime I'm going less than 10-mph. Anything faster and the sound is not present. It sounds like it's coming from the rear but I know sounds can telegraph through these cars easily. I did also just have the front brake pads replaced, driven maybe 100-miles since then.
I am curious if this could just be the new pads up front settling in, would they squeak like this? Keeping in mind that the squeak happens even when I am not touching the brakes, just rolling along slowly. Other thoughts are wheel bearing, but I recall that sound being more of a scraping or dragging sound than squeaking, same if the rear drums needed attention so I'm not totally sure what to check first.
