Have have been noticing that after a 10-20 min. highway drive my driver side rear rim is getting really hot. I had to get a brake job done on the car anyway and the went ahead and rebuilt both rear calapiers. We thought that this would take care of the problem but it still continues. The other night I started hearing a screaching sound from that wheel while I was driving down a side street. With the rim still getting hot and the noise I am starting to think that the wheel bearing could be bad. Any opinions.

The most common problem is frozen caliper slide pins. When they did the brake job, did they pull the pins out of the rubber boots and make sure they were clean and relubed properly?

Another thought is a dragging emergency brake. Is the cable moving freely, lubed and installed properly after the brake job?
