My GMC Jimmy has been recently making a grinding noise when I slow down. It makes this noise even when I let up on the break and allow the car to coast. It's as if I can literally hear the wheels turning and slowing down and they are grinding as they slow. This noise does not occur when I am accelerating or if I am maintaining my speed. I was told that the calipers may not be releasing the break fully and therefore it is rubbing on the discs. Any insight that you can provide would be helpful.

Check your brakes for frozen calipers/rust, etc.
