    Default Inconsistent "rubbing" noise from rear of car

    Every so often, typically when turning L or R from dead stop, I hear this "rubbing" from rear of car. It's not every time, and nothing seems wrong. Can't see anything when doing visual inspection? Sticky calipers/pads?

    Does the car have a Posi rear? I'd check/change the fluid.

    In addition to what BruceF mentioned, pull up on the parking brake lever when the noise is present and see if the noise goes away.

    Year, miles helps. Loose/rusty axle nuts can do a noise.

    If you are going to check the wheel speed sensor connectors it is recommended that you look at the pins with a magnifying glass. If you see any corrosion, usually very little green specs then replacement is required.
