like i said the noise starts when the car is in moving, when i am coming to a stop/slowing down the noise comes to a halt, once i get going again the noise appears in the rear, but to me it sounds like its coming from both sides so it's difficult to pin point exactly from where.

i will lift my rear this weekend and check on the rear breaks, rotor, etc.

is it possible the break shoes for the parking break are the culprit, can i spray them w/ wd40 if they r rusty or whatever?

what rear break pads do you guys recommend, i think the once i put on were from auto zone, but lately i have bee shopping from www.autohausaz.com a local online vendor, very competitive pricing. are PBR-Repco Deluxe rear pads a good brand, they carry 'em for 25$.

Could also be a seized caliper, or maybe worn pads if your sensor is malfunctioning. Just throwing some more possibilities out there for you to check.

Brake pads are a matter of what you want to do, if you want just normal stuff find some oem replacement pads or something along the lines of what your looking for.

Take a look at this page Pelican parts e30 pads section even the $33.25 pads should be fine since they are oem replacement, and I take it your not planing on doing any really agressive driving in the e30.

haven't had the chance to see the rear yet. weather has been bad, raining and cold as a mother

this weekend i will flush the break fluid, and will get a chance to check the rear and perhaps the culprite behind that noise.
