Will take a look in a bit. Thanks

 I know I can get aDelco parts for a chevy on Amazon for $88 all included for the rear of the vehicle. (Set of rotors and pads).

 While advance auto and auto zone want 40-45 a rotor and you can always find the 25% or some similar coupons.

Yup, have all the brake tools needed to change a set of brakes.

 Thanks though.

To start, I need the AC compressor replaced, install backup camera and brack fluid replacement (if this is the correct step to make the brack more sensitive)

Brack fluid? You mean brake?

Yup.

  it's cost $5 for a piston tool to compress the pistons.
  And you can just take the old brake pad and use as a backing to compress the pistons.

   Helping out a freind with his brakes, but have a feeling even though the rotors and pads are gone, it seems his rear wheel is a little bit on the slant which is causing a continuous squeaking noise without even pressing the brakes.

 Can either be the upper control arm lower control arm shocks and some other suspension components.
  Possible for it to be in the rim or the actual tire.

 I guess I'll remove the tire and visually inspect it to see if I can see anything.
