    Well shit. I bought the drivers side backing plate and parts and installed them today. I was sure my problem was fixed, but no.
    After getting the new parts on, I put the wheel on and just as before, it no longer rotates. I was so disgusted, I closed the shop and left.

    Now I have one side normal and one still f’d up. Back to the drawing board.

    Or a case of Tannerite.

    You could be like Terry and just go out and buy a complete new rear end, drum to drum. That should fix it, you can Thank me later.

    Funny you say that!

    I took the axles to Quick Performance here in Ames yesterday so they could make me a new set. Talked to one of their "Tech" guys and after explaining the problem he said to bring him all the parts and they'll check it all out in-house. They have lots of 9" rear housing and they'll put it together there and see what the damn problem is. God knows I've exhausted every other option!
