Only one rear wheel spins when jacked up in Neutral?

I jacked my rear up today to change brakes on my 2012 JK Sport and noticed only my drivers side rear wheel spins freely when the vehicle is in Neutral both tranny and t case and e-brake is off. Is this normal? The passenger side rear wheel seems locked up. Or does my Jk have something I never knew about? It's mostly stock as far as I know. Thanks

Not normal - you need to determine if its the service brake (disc/caliper) stuck or park brake on the right that is over adjusted. The service brakes easy - have a helper pump the pedal and you should see the caliper tense and relax. Pull the calipers and see if its still tight on the right - if so its the park brake and that's either a sticky cable (follow the cables and see if there is slack at the front end) or you will have to de-adjust it with a brake spoon to get the drum/rotor off.

Unfortunately I once dated a person that had an 08 JK. Seemed like it was a monthly ordeal replacing seized up calipers on that thing. It was at the point where all calipers had been replaced twice so three calipers per corner counting the originals. Just kept the receipts so after the first go around they were free.

With both rear tires off of the ground, can you turn both sides by hand?
