There are no U-joints in the rear. Closest thing to a U-joint on a Camry are the CV joints in the front axles.
The parking brakes are integrated into the rear rotors; little drum brakes in the rotor hub, on the back side. Those might be needing adjustment. Try applying the parking brake lightly while moving and see if you hear any noise.
It's really hard to diagnose noises without hearing them. Is it a rubbery thumping?... or more of a metallic sound?
