Brake Squeal only when backing up slowly...

I recently started getting some noise from my front right wheel area only when backing up slowly, such as out of the garage. It is a pretty loud squeal that does not occur when going forward, only in reverse. Pads are Hawk with 15k on them and rotors are original with like 17k.

I recently installed my Eibach springs and everything looked good during the install in terms of pad and rotor wear. Any idea what could be causing this?

Re: Brake Squeal only when backing up at idle...

FIgured out what it was...when I did my spring install, I removed the axle nut to drop the spindle some more. Apparently when I re-seated it, the "teflon" washer between the backside of the spindle and the CV axle didn't seat all the way properly and was causing the squeak. I lubed it up with some grease and made sure it was sitting good and now no more noise.
