2002 jeep wrangler rear drum getting hot? Its getting to be a money pit for me I have 9 1/2 drum on the back and replaced the rear drums and shoes with new then It seem that the right side was getting hotter the the left side? Very hot without even using my brake after a trip around the block 1 mile? The first thing I done was to replace the wheel cyl on both sidea with factory new parts and bleed both lines same thing? Then I replaced the springs on both sides and still same thing? Then I replaced the hose for the back brakes and still same thing. I have ran about 2 pints of brake fluid thinking I had air in the lines and still getting the same problems? I have replaced the brake line steel 3/16 on the driver side rear because I had a small leak that fixed the leak but still gettin hot on the right side?. I was thinking parking brake sticking so I just disconnected the cable on both sides and ran it and still getting hot. I had photos of the shoes before I took them off and after so my springs are in the right place. Am thinking the shoes are the problem now as they are non factory shoe? But I cannt understand is why when the jeep is on a stand both wheels seem to turn free but that right side after running has got me?. I know if I take this to my dealer they will $$$$ me to death with a 300.00 bill at 80.00 a hour without finding the problem. Any advice. I have let the adjuster do most the work on getting the shoes adjusted os I wouldnt over adjust them.
