Question about Cars & Trucks
If you have drums for the rear brakes then have the drums check for out of round. This occurs when the drums are hot and the hand brake is pulled on tight and the brakes cool down adopting the shape of the shoes.

SOURCE: 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 rear brakes
Hi joelalthomas, if they replaced your brakes and you never even made it home they had better warranty the work and as for the "it was a common problem on 2002-2004 trucks" well check for Chevy recalls as this is a safety issue that would have been corrected at no expense to the vehicle owner, do a little more research my friend and let me know what happens, I will check around a little as well in the meantime I would find a new garage.Do not pay any more as you said your brakes worked fine until they worked on it good luck to you As for your 4x4 did you look at the left side when you did the right side? and were they bled off properly? you can visually check to see if the calipers are functioning

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.

More likely to be a rear end issue. If the brakes have been checked I would have your rear end checked. Could turn into a very dangerous situation.

check wheel bearing... and make sure that the metal shims are installed with the pads. they prevent noises
