sounds like the parking brake cable is stuck on the side, the first step, and the easiest step it to locate the cable behind the tire and really spray it with "WD-40" or "PB Blaster". That is to see if the cable can become free. If that doen't work, than you have to manualy de-adjust the brakes, ny locating a small rubber plug, rectangular in shape and using a brake adjusting tool, (availabel at most auto part stores) to "turn back" the adjusting screww inside the drum.

SOURCE: rear tire wear
This truck has a live rear axle, meaning there is nothing to adjust back there. Have you hit somthing? The wear being on the outside of the tire would indicate that the tire is pointing in to the center of the vehicle. Sight down each of the rear tires to the front tires and see if it appears tif the rear axle is skewed to one side. Possibley bad locating arm busings or somthing bent.

SOURCE: rear strut almost rubs tire
It can be a bent strut or just an alignment issue.
first if you can put the car on a left or jack stands(on the rear but not on the suspention) you can then loosen the 2 bolts at the bottom of the strut at this point you can move the top of the wheel out. then tighten the bolts lower the car and see if that moved the wheel enough. is it did get an alignment and if not replace the strut.

That is pretty easy. You need to have a front end alignment done at a good shop. If there is something bent or worn out, they will be able to tell.
But it could also be the torsion bar is broken, or the rear adjustment rubber bushing for it is broken.
Is it bottomed out on one side? The torsion bars are instead of coil springs, and they spline into the lower track arm, and run towards the back of the vehicle, where the adjustment bolt is. Adjuster is slightly in front of rear axle.
