Brakes/Rocking Chair

hey, my description might sound a bit cartoony since i don't really know too much about preludes, or brakes in general, so here goes...

first of all, whenever i apply my brakes, i apply them really soft, and only press down harder when i know that if i dont i'm likely going to end up hitting the bumper of the car in front...

so when i begin to apply them harder, they come to a point - usually right before the car comes to a full stop - where a sound comes from the back of a car that sounds almost like a rocking chair, a heavy sound rocking back and forth, even though i don't feel anything.

i'm asking you guys, cuz if i go to a mechanic, they're probably going to make up a bogus brake problem and rob me of my money! so please guys, helppp!

^I think i can relate to you when i say i've heard that sort of noise before I live in NYC, and 90% of the yellow taxi's make SQUEELING brake noises, some sounding like a rocking chair LOL!!!

I think your rear pads are worn down to the metal, take off the rear wheel(s) and just inspect them with your bare eye. Better yet, inspect each brake caliper and pads(both front) to see who is the suspect
