Drum brakes? Be sure the shoes aren't rubbing against the backing plate when
applied. That was the issue I had with a Celica a few months ago. I also
found that when I applied the brakes and they squealed, if I pressed real hard
once they wouldn't squeal anymore on that trip.

I was done I took the car out and it did not squeal on me, even
varied speeds backwards. Well, I just heard that they are still
slow back up speed on my kid as she was leaving just now.
