Dont understand, why take them off in the first place ? refitting is the reverse of what youve done ?!
unless of course you have applied pressure to the brake pedal which will knock up the auto adjusters (if fitted ?)then the drums wont go on till you reset them. more info required

My jeep makes a sound from the rear for example today backed out of a parking spot and a loud clicking kinda like if u put a baseball card in the spoke of a bike only louder


Check the back brakes . I believe you have drum brakes in the back.The brake hardware. ie..Springs, clips.. come apart sometimes. And this will cause the clicking noise you hear

How do you replace the rear axle seal?


Its easiest to buy a hanes manual for this vehicle for this repair. Here goes. Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the drum if drum brakes or brake caliper and rotor is its disc brakes. remove the cover on the rear differential. remove the small bolt that holds the lock pin in place. slide the lock pic out of the spider gears. **its very important not to let the ring and spider gears turn at this point or the spider gears will fall out of the carrier. Once the lock pin is removed then go around to the axle where the tire was and push it in (toward the rear end) as far as it will go. Go back to the differential and remove the retainer clip (looks like a big "C") from the axle shaft. You can now pull the axle completely out of the housing. At this point you will be able to see the axle seal and the wheel bearing located behind the seal. Carefully remove the old seal (be sure not to damage the wheel bearing) and install the new one. You can then put everything back together. Make sure to refill your differential with oil when everything is back together. check your owners manual for the exact gear oil that you need because these cherokees can use different types depending on the model and towing capacity.

Jeep rear brakes sticking on


You need to have it taken apart and cleaned. If it has drum breaks in the rear try replacing the shoes and spring hardware kit. If its pad and disc then try replacing the pads and possibly the calipers. Its very common for drum breaks to stick on this vehicle more so if it has sat for any length of time.

How do I put back together the rear drum?


These are standard Bendix self energising rear drum brakes. Pictures of the assembly with exploded views can be seen here....

The real difficulty with doing the re-assembling is not where the parts go, but getting it all back in place. There is a technique to use. If you have problems, get back here again.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee limited 135k miles.. 2wd rear... when i start off and when i stop i hear something like a dragging sound coming from the rear... what could cause this?


It could be your brakes. Jack up the car, put on safety stands, block front wheels at front and back of tires, put Jeep in neutral, try to spin rear wheels, listen for any rubbing, dragging noise. It could either be brakes not releasing (feel the center of the wheel after driving, is it hot?), or a brake component loose and floating around inside the drum. 'Check this 1st, let me know what you find, then we can continue if necessary.
