Ihave a 2006 toyota 4runnedr. with 13300 miles. when I back out I hear a vert loud squeal. only does it whwen I back up.?

I believe your 4-Runner has an option of either rear drum or rear disc brakes. If the squeal is coming from the rear and you have rear drum brakes, have them cleaned and adjusted. If the squeal comes from the front, a shim may have slipped off of one of the brake pads and is scraping on the hat of the rotor.
