Question Brakes sqealing

Ive noticed I have an issue lately when I have to ride the brakes for a distance, one of them sounds like it is sticking a bit. After I let off of the brakes, I can hear a squealing noise that doesnt stop until I bring the truck to a stop, and then go again. Once I do that, its gone. Ive had issues with our Durango's rear calipers hanging up in the past, is this something to look for on these trucks?

I know I need to get an hour or so of free time to pull the rear wheels and have a look. Just figured Id see if any of you noticed this with your trucks.

I have replaced both front calipers on mine for sticking. According to the guy at our local NAPA parts it is a very common problem on Dodge Rams. Hope this helps?

i notice mine squeals too when I first hit the break, and then goes away. No Idea why. I drained the break fluid, to see if that would fix it but thats about it. still does it so whatever.

I wont be happy at all if Im replacing calipers on a truck with just over 40000 miles on it. Im hoping to have time next weekend to pop the wheels off and have a look at whats going on with it.

This weekend I did some hauling/ towing (@6000 lbs) up and down some steep hills with it and the brakes didnt make a single odd noise. Strange.

Thanks, none of those really account for whats happening. It doesnt do it all the time, just sometimes after having to ride the brakes, say, down a grade. I let my foot off the brake pedal and the squealing starts, I come to a complete stop, then go again and the squealing is gone. Seems like a sticky caliper.
