Okay, so I've had my Ford Ranger XLT 2001 Manual 5spd for a little over a year now. I have recently started hearing a what initially was a squealing noise from the rear end. It developed into a clicking/slight crunch that is still from the rear end. I haven't replaced my drum brakes yet and I'm going to do that sometime soon here but if anyone has ANY idea what this could be I could really use your help. I'm just hoping its not the tranny. The truck has 197000 miles on it so I know it's going to need repairs. Please help me out though.
