Sounds like the adjuster cable might have snapped or the return springs aren't allowing the shoes to ease back after braking. Remove the tires and drums and inspect the springs and hardware for any defects. This is probably going to be where you need to look. good luck

Why do the rear wheels get very hot at hwy speed after only 20 mi?


Replace the rear brake hose/s. They deteriorate on the inside and clog up. Not letting the calipers or cylinders to release. I recommend replacing the front and rear.

How do i remove a seized up rear wheel bearing on a 2 wheel drive 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring


How do you know its the bearings.

Aussuming the car is front wheel drive, what happens when you try to drive it? Does it drag the wheel? There is a chance it may break it free since you've gone over it with a slege hammer.

Rear wheel grinding noise


Take the tires off and inspect the brakes. Sounds like they are badly worn.

Rear brake sticking


Your saying as you drive it locks and skids? You say as you try to pull out the wheel is shuck and it won't turn? Or your saying that you detect that the wheel is dragging and the wheel turns fine? Is the other rear wheel sticking? The parking brake pedal is it all the way up? With the pedal up are the parking braek cables under the truck going to rear wheels tight or taugt but moving or slack and hanging. As this cable enters the hosing going to the rear wheel about an inch from the housing ( cable Housing ) clamp on a pair of vise grips or other locking pliers and hit them with a hammer towards the rear wheel. As your trying to make the cable go back as much as it's going to. Check both sides as it's possible that thier frozen in the cold weather. It's wise to avoid using the parking break in cold weather as they get mositure in them over time and with them frozen on the brake wil stick. If you find the cables slack with the pedal released and beating them back towards the wheel does'nt seem to be releasing the break you may need to heat the cable with a tourch to free them. The other answer is the rear break came aprt someway and the break shoes are bound up against the drum. The wheel bearing is possible too unless you can tell is the break.

Replaced shoes on 1988 Toyota Pickup 2 wd, breaks will not stop wheels...what could this problem be?


I assume the rear shoes where replaced,was this a problem before replacing the rear shoes?Adjust the rear shoes out to where the wheel drags just a littl when turning it by hand,then if you need to,bleed the brakes,bleed the master cylinder,then the right rear,left rear,then right front,and left front,do not run out of brake fluid during this proccess.

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.
