Brakes squeal only in reverse

Usually after sitting for a while. 12,700 miles on the vehicle. Braking feels just fine, anything specifically I should look for? It sounds like it is coming from the rear.

EDIT: I meant to post in troubleshooting section sorry

Re: Brakes squeal only in reverse

My guess would be the parking brake.

Since it is the drum and shoe style, I believe it may actually adjust while going in reverse and this could be the cause of your noise.
