Thats serious... need to find out if its a brake problem or rear end , or trans problem. I would not think universal replacement would have anything to do with it, but thats strange.

I have a 1992 chevy k1500 that did the exact same thing its really only when you back up right if so it is the rear brake shoe self adjusters there are wore down and everytime you back up then go forward the tire locks up tight my suggestion is to either buy new ones for it or jus get rid of them all together thats what i did

Why rear wheels are locked up but front are not

the first place to check is then rear drive line "U" joints as fail on a regular basis and can be not allowing the shaft to turn properly
T check for diff , jack up one side and engage a gear
if the wheel spins then the diff is turning but if it makes a bad noise (all will rumble a t a low level in this position) the diff will be faulty
It is possible that a joint flange has come loose and the bolts are jamming on the back of the transfer case housing

could be a tire wobble..
or check your U-joints on your rear drive shaft.
see if they need to be replaced. that's what I'm guessing it will be.

1999 f150 4x4 noice in rear end of truck, I have rotated the tires and had a mechanic look at the brakes and wheel bearings.

Drive shaft joints? You need to run it on the lift and put a stethoscope on the housing near the axle bearings. They still may sound okey because they not loaded as on the ground. You could go for new u-joints and balance the drive shaft. Change the gear oil and additive if locking diff. Tape the rear tire diameter on both sides.

My u joint broke and right before my rear end shuttered now after replacing u joint truck wont move but tows just fine

Try jacking up the whole back end, disconnect the u-joint and see if you can move the rear end by turning the tires and turning the input shaft of the rear end. If the rear end is free you most likely have a problem with your transmission or transfer case. One of those could have locked up, locking up your rearend making it feel like a shudder in the rearend, then breaking the weak link between the two (the u-joint). Hope this helps.

no. It would be the other way around. If something went wrong in the rear end and it locked up, you could break the drive shaft universal joints trying to force it to go. if your rear end locked up, I'd be willing to bet there was no oil in it.
