Whenever I get out of the car with the ebrake on, I hear this horrible craking noise from the back of the car. Also, if I shake the car with the ebrake on it does the same thing. Any ideas how to fix this?

You need to "exercise" your emergency brake. When coming to a stop (at a light, for instance), lightly apply the emergency brake. This wears-off accumulated rust on the e-brake drum.
Nice fix! Never thought of that...

I was CONVINCED it was my fat a$$, and wouldn't tell anyone ;)

haha, I use that have a squeak that seemed to be coming from the rear driver-side. I always thought my 300-lbs butt was causing it. But then it just went away after a while, and I haven't heard it since...
