there's a squicking noise comming from the rear drivers side wheel. It only makes it when the wheel is spining as soon as I hit the breaks it stops. Anybody know what it might be?

Probably your brake pads. Especially if the noise disappears when you step on the brakes.

Does it speed up when you speed up and visa-versa?

Peace.

Question

Please describe noise better.
Don't know what 'squicking' means?

Sometimes a bad Axel Bearing related noise will disappear/lessen when you apply brakes.

OK..did my rear brake pads this weekend and noise still there. If I speed up the squicking noise is faster slows down when I reduce the speed down, but goes away when I apply brakes....need help the noise is really irritating.

I'll guess "SQUEAKING" Axel Bearing. [img]graemlins/4.gif[/img] If AB is toast, you'll need to replace Axel Shaft as well!

Have you installed improved Differential Cover Gasket[it improves rear lube getting to Axel Bearings]?
If not, you'll get a chance now, if Axel Bearing diagnosis is correct.
Fel-Pro PN RDS55028-1 or GM PN 26066456

ADD: Could also be front or rear Driveshaft Universal Joint.

Eric, suggestion; you or Gearhead friend remove rear driver side wheel[that is the one you think sqeaking is coming from, right?], and while grasping Rotor hat, try & move up & down to check play between Bearing and Axel Race. Should be minimal.
Also check back of tire/rim for signs of gear lube.
Once a Bearing wears enough, the Axel Seal usually fails also.
