    97 CRV 116500miles. When braking in the rear of the vehicle, there is
    a squeaking, lightly. I turned off car when I got home and pressed
    the pedal a couple of times and there is light squeak. I assume they
    need cleaned or lubricate the springs and moving parts?

    Your rear brake shoe adjusters have stopped adjusting themselves. The
    squeak you hear is the 'travel' of the show rubbing on the backing
    plate. You are wearing out your brake system at an accelerated rate
    because everything is going out of adjustment.

    You need to find a shop that will thoroughly clean and LUBRICATE the
    mechanism inside. Don't let them sell you shoes because they often last
    forever (unless they can show that they are truly worn out). There's
    something like 13 lubrication points inside each rear brake. Read
    through this thread to understand the process:

    Be aware you're supposed to be adjusting your engine valves every 30,000
    miles (or pay the man $3,000).
