You had said: "Wake his azz up"

I quoted that and said "You don't have a Dremel?"

Indicating why wake him up? You should have a Dremel Ken. At least that was the take on it I intended.

Alright, I have a quandary, I hope someone here can help.

Whenever I'm driving, I can hear this faint squeak squeak squeak squeak, and it goes away whenever I hit the brakes, so obviously it's related to that.

Any ideas what that could be?

And I can't wait for my interior to look like THIS! (minus the steering wheel, I think I'm going with a Momo with a BMW center)

BTW, any clues as to what my squeaking is? It goes away when I hit the brakes, it's a squeak squeak squeak squeak squeak whenever the car is moving.

I'll check it out later, sounds like it's from the driver's side.

Here's the vid by the way, I think it was on 10psi.

Yeah, I'd check your dust sheilds. Also have you done anything brake-wise recently? Did you remember to back off your parking brake shoes a tad? Maybe just a build-up of brake dust inside the drums.

I will do.

Yea, just finally adjusted the parking brake and got it set. Yup, backed it off. Sound does not change whenever I pull on the E-Brake.

The sound is annoying as fock.

Can't tell, sometimes I think it's the rear, but now I'm thinking front. Sounds like driver's side as well.

I *think* when I turn, it goes away, or at least quiets down some.

Hmm... If at low speeds too, just have someone walk beside and around the car while you go slow, to pinpoint it.

I don't hear it at low speeds, at least not that I noticed.

Did you find out the ratchet noise yet?
