Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have never seen an adjuster arm rub on the axle and very much doubt that this is the issue and easy enough to know. IF it were to rub on the axle, there would be a bright spot on the adjuster arm, even a new one. If you dont see one, then it isnt rubbing.
The most common cause is due to the new drums being slightly out of round. 90% of new drums are in fact out of round due to either poor manufacturing, or improper shipping and storage on a shelf. You can confirm with a brake drum micrometer, but if you dont have one, you can remove them and take to the parts store you bought them from and they will have one to measure them with. If out of round, then they need to be machined to true them and this will resolve the rubbing sound.
I will opt out as I have yet to encounter this, so not sure how you would correct it since you have already replace the adjuster arm. If another expert knows, they will post here for you
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Were factory OEM brake components used or after market components?
Let me know,thanks Pete.
Can you inspect the way the shoes and drums are made compared to the factory components you removed to see if there is any difference in between the after market parts and the factory parts.I have seen in some cases where after market parts can cause an issue like this here in some cases and needed replaced again with either factory parts or a different brand after market part.
Was everything installed correctly and no parts put on backwards?
