Man, you've got a lot of weird noises on your blazer... Can you describe the squealing? Sound like tires, metal to metal, rubber on metal???

My first thought would be to check the rear driveshaft "U" joints.

Have you checked the brakes?
If you have rear disc brakes, check the inner pads as well. Could be the calipers sticking.

I am a firm believer of using the anti-squeak compound on the back of brake pads. I had to do the brake job on the rear of my Bravada after I had packed my garage up before I moved and couldn't find my stuff. I now need to take it apart again and apply the compound to the back of the pads to get them to stop squeallin' abit under light braking.

Kyle makes a good point regarding the anti squeal stuff. It's usually the metal backing on the brake pad contacting the caliper causing the sqeak, more common with jobber pads than OEM pads from the dealer.
The other thing is that if the caliper slide pins are not properly lubricated, the pads make more noise too.
