I also suspect possible brake trouble or the suspension components, but it sounds like its related to the brake system.


Rip the drums off and make sure everything is in place, compare each side to make sure everything is secure.

F.U.B.A.R. is an acronym for:

1. F*cked up beyond all reason.
2. F*cked up beyond all recognition.
3. F*cked up beyond all repair.
thanks for clearing that up

now to go on a hunt

To me, it sounds like your rear brake drum on one side isn't releasing. Bound up return spring or something like that.

Yeah, i still havn't had time nor space to check this out yet, (with college deadlines getting closer and closer, and my senior research paper that Mrs. Young decided now would be a great time to do it...ugh...but anyway, i im now sure its the brakes, the front rims have been a little hotter than normal since the new rotors and pads went on 2 months ago(and occasionally if i have to really get on the brakes for any reason they overheat, rear rims are cool so...w/e, but im going into the drums and checking the discs Friday or over the weekend..and maybe put my UVA application off just one more weekend

Thanks for the help, if i run into anymore trouble with this i'll bring this thread back up

The Problem was the Wheel Cylinder on the Passenger side rear drum was leaking, the rubber cap on one end had basically come off of its seat...so i cleaned everything up and got two new wheel cylinders, since i was doing one i might as well do the other

test drove - problem solved

come back into the garage and notice a dark puddle, oil, probably about as big around as like a softball, or bigger hopefully that was just because the car was tilted forward (if that could cause that), or maybe i didn't tighten the bolt on the bottom of the oil pan all the way

i'll find that out today, but thanks guys
