I recently had a lug nut stud replaced on one of my rear tires. I believe they had to take apart the drum brake to remove the old stud and install the new one.
That same day I heard a scraping which increased in frequency as I sped up. I visually inspected the drum brake but didn't see anything out of place. The wheel cannot spin a full rotation when I jack up the car. It spins about 3/4 of the way freely then seems to catch on the brake.
Also I can feel a slight pulsating when I brake at around 15-25mph.
Any ideas of what I should be looking for?
I finally got sick of the noise and replaced the brake drum, problem solved.
