Rear End Problems?

Something is also wrong with the rear end In my 94 yj. After about ten mintutes of driving it will start to make a friction created noise in the rear and you can feel a resistance pulling the jeep to a stop. The guy pulled the cover I bought it off of and said there are no visual failurs with the spiders and the ring, He said the jeep did just get new brakes all around and maybe they need adjusted in the back or something. Any ideas?

Pull out your haynes manual and get to adjusting your rear brakes. They are definatly hanging up it sounds like.

Well I pulled the drums off, I did not noticed anything wrong the wheels spin free. I guess it is time to tear apart the rear.

Whoa! I agree with the brake thing. A bad master may cause your problem or dirty fluid or air in the system. Check that carefully first.

No is sounds like a mess back there though but still drives smooth but resisting . I am going to jack it up again tomorrow and have someone put it in gear and listen back there.

Give your Ujoints a once over if you haven't already then.

Yes.

Also squeaking, popping, and clunking, but not all at the same time.

Did some inspecting today!!??

Well I jacked it up today. The pinion has more play then it seems like its supposed too. The brakes are good nothing hanging up there. The drive shaft u-joints seem ok no play. It seems like I was hearing something in the passenger side axle tube like a bearing or something. I could spin the axles freely with my hand nothing sounded like when I drive it. I am still stumped, I will tear it down tomorrow probably.
