    trying to keep this short

    1 year ago, had my rear axle seal replaced, started leaking again, started to hear a funny growl on my christmas vacation drive, and a ringing type of noise when I let off the gas and there is back pressure. so i bought another one and replaced it, refilled the diff, noise is still there. drove an hour today to get home, then I noticed there was a hissing sound coming from the wheel area, sounded like a punctured tire, but it surely was not, then I put my hand near the wheel and it was HOT. the heat may be from the brakes, as i might have messed up the rear, but I'm not sure. where should I start looking for my problem? thanks

    Did you replace the wheel bearing when you did the seals.

    ok well things just got more fun, I'll pick up new bearings tomorrow, but I think it was the brakes, when I was cleaning everything up before putting it back together I adjusted the brakes (by accident) and I think they were rubbing the whole drive back and the heat was the brakes.(facepalm) It didn't feel like it though..

    anyways, I just went out to bring the truck in the garage, and my right rear tire doesn't wanna move, I can tell it's the right rear from the way it pulls, I didn't give it much cause I didn't wanna break anything, so, should I just drive it into the garage and force it to move, or whaaat? I could take it apart where it is, but it's raining and cold out...

    after I first started hearing the noise I added some oil, I was able to fit about half of a bottle, do you think it got too dry?

    it really depends on whats causing it to be locked but forcing it is probably NOT a good idea

    well I got the drum off finally, no signs of any carnage, there is a bit of oil though, might be the other axle seal?

    when I had the brake apart to do the axle seal, I pulled the e brake cable, this made the brakes tighter, it was hard to get the drum back on so I should have known. but basically brakes were tightened, making them rub on the drum.
