Drum Brake Squeaks When Pedal is Released

I can't find any fix for this. My rear driver's side drum brake squeaks when the brake pedal is RELEASED to let off the brake. It also seems to do it(not as harsh) when the e-brake is put down. Any ideas how to fix it?

sounds like you may have a squeaky spring in your drum. take the drum off and spray everything down with brake cleaner. see if that doesn't fix it.

Try just plain water. It's what we used at auto repair shop to get all the dust out. We used a low pressure garden hose.
