I took apart my rear drums to clean out brake dust and see if I could find the source of a metallic clicking sound when I let my foot off of the brake. After putting everything back together I now have a new sound as I’m driving there is a somewhat loud squeal which tends to fade as I step on the brakes. It comes and goes though is more constant. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Did you lubricate all the points on the backing plates?
Parking brake levers, etc...
Is parking brake fully released, Even if park brake pedal is released.

I did lubricate all 6 contact points on each rear wheel. As far as the parking brake lever I did not. Do you mean the park brake handle under the dash?

No. The levers in the backing plates. They are notorious for sticking/ freezing up because they do not get used enough.
