Did your truck have this problem the entire time you owned it, or did it start happening as the drums worn.

Actually, after you said that, I noticed that after I had the drums turned, it would do ok for awhile, but eventually they would start locking up again.

Did you eventually get your problem corrected?
Thanks,,,
