Default Rear driver side tire creaking when applying brakes.

While it currently seems to have no effect on cart, when I apply brakes rear left makes an odd creaking noise? Any ideas?

Check the lug nuts and make sure they're not loose, or the rear axle bearing is bad

The U bolts may also be loose.

It's not that metal to metal sound, it's hard to describe but as the tire rotates it'll creak seemingly once per tire rotation. Creak/nothing/creak/nothing. Lol can you upload videos on here?

Might be a wheel bearing.

I had that sound on mine before, and it was the wheel bearing bad, try a new one, they are not too expensive, you can get one from any of the site sponsors
