Rear wheel seized on drivers side. I Rolled over a speedbump then clanking sound and rear wheel drivers side stopped turning. Did new brake cylinder and shoes recently on this side. I Believe its only the drivers side because it only left drag marks on the drivers. At first I thought the wire coat hanger holding up my exhaust gave out but there appears to be no exhaust obstruction on either the driveshaft or the rear axle. My Tracker has the 2.0 engine. I still wasn't parked far enough into the parking spot when it seized a so I put it in reverse, moved back a bit went forward again and got another six inches.
