Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Rear brakes drum 2003 ford winstar. Brakes were put together & they spin freely when its just the drum but when the tire is put on it makes the wheels turn very tough if @ all?
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.
