SOURCE: Rear Axle Bearing
i know for a fact that the bearing comes with the hub., and if the old bearing is badly damage you may need to heat it to remove it from the axel...so this may be a rather big job if your not equipt
with torch or other ...

Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: right rear wheel
have a 1996 Neon with the same problem I am currently working on. It did the same thing to me 6 months ago. At that time I changed the brake shoes and the wheel cylinder. Now the problem is back. Pads are still good. I think the problem may be a combination of 2 things. A large lip on the inboard side of the drum and the drum is out of round. The lip is bumping the pads enough to allow the pads to catch and jamb as the smaller diameter of the drum comes around. There is also one area on the inside of the drum that you can see has been hot and left a heat discoloration or scorch mark about 4 inches long. I will see if the drum can be turned. If not I will just replace it. This problem only occurs on wet or slippery pavement at slow speeds. At fast speeds it creates the scorch mark on the inside of the drum.

SOURCE: right rear wheel locking up
okay you had brake work done!!! "THINKING" that was the problem originally right rear wheel locking up! okay,,, so doing brakes has not solved your problem! I would maybe look into rear end bearing??? do you have any load road noise from rear and do you have rear end fluid in differential? question to you was the baking plate ""WET"" looked damp? or moister get at it!??? seal might have leaked all fluid out??? all the above would be good place to start! good luck I hope this info helps you out.Happy new year.
