Creaking/Squeeking while in reverse

It has been a real wet and cold winter this year and since about December when I turn my wheel to the right and go in reverse it sounds like a one of my rear brakes is rubbing. I did a search and saw a bunch of topics on U-joints and stuff but this really sounds like the brakes. I took a look and didn't see any rubbing. My question is has anyone heard of this before when it does it just in real wet/cold times? I had it in at the ford dealership for some fluid changes about a week ago and they said everything on the truck looked fine. Any ideas?

My current and previous ranger does this too. It happens when water gets in the brakes and then it freezes or sits there. It makes an annoying sound, but everything is fine. Nothing you can really do about it.
