Locking Rear Drum Brake
After my normal 26 mile commute, in dry , hot weather, what seemed to be my right rear drum locked and dragged the tired. It literally squealed. I was doing about 25-30 mph and had just trouched the brake. I am in line for a pad change, perhaps rotor as well? Is there some issue that I am missing? I did a search and found a lot of stuff about wet brakes, but mine were dry, and I had already driven over 25 miles.

Do the brakes need servicing or not ? If they do, see if that fixes the problem. Pads/rotors or brake shoes/brake drums are replaced with new parts at the same time. You should not re-use old parts with new parts. You should probably should consider bleeding the brakes and removing all the old brake fluid, as you refill with fresh fluid.

When they said the lift would be here monday, I ordered my tires. Also trying to identify source of oil leak. Will post pic in few minutes on that.
thanks, for the reply.
Is it disc or drum brakes? Do you do your own work or have a mechanic? These things can come into play. You could have a bad axle seal in the back causing your brakes to hang up. You could have a piece of broken hardware behind your brake drum, ebrake cable could be stuck, etc.
