Really bad sound from rear!

I drove down to Phoenix last week(100miles) and had a good scare. Everything was fine until a horrible squeeling, metal grinding, clunking came from the right rear. I immediatly pulled into a parking lot to check thinks out. Only made noise when moving. I parked jacked up the rear to check things out. Turning the right rear made the noise. Sounded like it was coming from the end of the axle shaft. I fiddled with the shaft and rotated the tire in both directions. Put car back down, drove about 100 feet and the noise went away. I drove home and the car hasn't made a sound since. Took it to MB indie shop. They jacked it up and checked things out. "Everything looks fine". We came to the conclusion that a piece of gravel got stuck in the brakes. Seems to fit, He said it happens sometimes. Is this true? Any help? thanks, andy

If you're from the Cottonwood near Prescott and stopped in Prescott, that was my brother's shop.

I went to Black Motors in Sedona. They were pretty cool. It's nice to know there is a shop in Prescott also. What's the name? andy

If you have the time, I would jack up each side again and remove the wheels to inspect the pads and other components yourself. It would make you feel more assured about their condition.

I would probably do this to see if there were any pad damage. I'm thinking in terms of a pad breaking on you, maybe twisting around and grinding for awhile. Not the metal part, but the pad material sometimes breaks.

Naturally you would get to make sure all the other components of the wheel and hub are OK. Like the pins that hold the brake pads in place, etc.

If you do find something happened, let us know.
