I noticed this last weekend and today it is worse.  When I am driving down the road I hear this rubbing/squeaking noise when I stop it stops but soon as I start moving it starts again the faster I go the faster the noise goes.  When I press on the brakes it is still there.  I have an appointment tomarrow but I was wondering if anyone has had this problem so I don't get it up the rear from my dealership.  The noise is driving me NUTS!!!!!!!

PS It sounds like it is coming from the rear wheels but I can't really tell.

Maybe the e brake line is rubbing or someother line/hose is rubbing the inside of rear tire?

Or maybe a bad suspension part?

dealer looked at my '02 Z66 for same problem, 3 times, never found reason for it. they did brake work and it got quieter, could hear it more pronounced when midgate was down, sounded like right rear, traded for a 2500, so far no noise.

sounds like u-joints. put the rear axle on jsck stands, start the truck and put it in gear. You should hear the noise as the rear wheels turn. Step on the brake before you put it back in park. with the wheels off of the ground, it will idle at about 40 mph. You don't want to put it in park at that speed.  And if the noise isn't there when you do this, the chances are it's coming from the front end.  If you have 4WD then you can put all 4 on jacks and listen around for yourself in the front also. thumbs_up

They fixed your EBRAKE?

Hmmmmmm...This would make a sound if it was broken...but not a rubber on rubber rubbing noise...more like a file on metal noise....or fairly low pitch sound of metal in a lathe being turned.....kinda between a grinding and rubbing noise.....

Hi, brand new on this site. I got my av. 6 weeks ago, just love it. I have the same problem that very annoying squeak. Just can't find where it is coming from. Just trying to rule out everything, like braking and it still there, meaning not brakes or suspension, loading it up with people(weight) still there, thinking maybe exhaust, in the cold climate I live in metal shrinks, but when warm still there, I'm lost, the worst of it all is still don't even have an idea of the area in which it is coming from, under the truck, inside, engine compartment, or under the dash.    HELP

1.  U Joints.

if not 1, than 2.

2.  Dirt/dust in brake pads or around hubs.  Dirt getting stuck in hub seals means wheel bearings will be needed soon.
