If its the same tire and rim that was on the vehicle prior to the brake work then there should be no clearance problem, with the wheel off and a couple of lug nuts on snug try to wiggle the hub up, down, left, right, to see if you have a bearing issue.

    Try it with the wheel on also it might be more effective.

Take the lug bolts and try putting the broad side against the drum without the tire rim. It sounds like the rear brakes are adjusted too tight. Also check the emergency brakes which may have to be adjusted looser now that the linings are new and thicker.
If you can run the lugnuts against the drum with the broadside hitting the drum you will duplicate what is happening with the tire rim. You will be able to see better and can adjust the brakes without the tire in the way.

Do ford windstar have drum rear brakes


Some do and some don't, it was optional. I would say that rear drum brakes are the most common. You can see the drums easily by just looking under the rear of the wheel.

How to change back brakes 1999 ford windstar, back brakes are grinding, brake light on


does it have rear disc brakes or drum brakes, if disc brakes should be changed just like the front and you might have an emergency brake shoe inside the rotor that they call a halo shoe, if it is drum brakes take off the adjusting spring and the return spring remove the brake adjuster,the the brake bar then remove the brake shoe hold down spring by holding the pin from the back and pushing and turning the spring to remove from the pin, you might have to remove the the emergency brake bar from one shoe by removing the horseshoe clip from the pin on the shoe if you have problems putting it back together look at the other side that you have not torn down yet.
