1990 f150 brake/bearing problem

the passenger side rear brake drum gets very hot when driving. a lot more then the other side. brakes seem to be working properly but it shakes the truck at highway speed.how can the wheel bearing get that hot?

Make sure the park brake cable isn't hanging up. Raise the rear and turn the wheels and see if something is dragging on that side.

Re: 1990 f150 brake/bearing problem

i disconnected the parking brake. that was my first thought also. im afraid it may be the bearing. is there away to check that bearing with out taking the axle out of the truck?

Re: 1990 f150 brake/bearing problem

Raise the wheel and try lifting it up and down, not in and out. Kind of like you wanted to see how big the hole is in the housing.There should be a very slight movement. I've never noticed any extra heat when a bearing goes bad. The good side was about the same temp.

make sure your wheel is balanced. i had a weight pop off a wheel i thought was balanced and it started giving me the high speed problem, but i never checked for heat.
