Rear wheel trouble

I have a 94 taurus with discs on all 4 tires. My left rear wheel is heating up to the point where smoke will rolll off the entire wheel and u can smell something burning. I thought it might be caliper so i replaced it, the pads, and the rotor. It continued to heat up. I had the rear hub assembly changed thinking it could of been bearings and it still heats up! I am running out of ideas....anyone have any?

Re: Rear wheel trouble

The hand brake may have its own brake shoes inside the discs and it could be dragging

Re: Rear wheel trouble

Jack the wheel up. Does it spin freely with the hand break off?

Loosen off the handbrake cable/pre-tension and see if this helps.
