Brake drum

Took my brake drum off too inspect my brakes after they started sticking and now I cant get it to go on right it looks to be flushed on wheel side but it's looks off at the bottom of the back side any way it's causing my wheel to wobble I can't seem to figure it out I attached a photo to show the spacing difference from top to bottom

I don't see anything I even turned the brake adjustment to pull the brakes to see if that's why it's catching and I don't see anything I cleaned everything out like dust and dirt can't seem to figure it out I took the other one off the opposite side to compare and it went back on fine

Will your drum go on all the way without the wheel? The drum is tight on the hub (axle) and it may have a lip on it.

Not sure I understand kboles but it's flush on the hub but the spacing on the back seems off

The hub should be protruding from the drum.
Could be a build up of rust on the hub. Not letting the drum seat fully.


And you don't by chance have the parking brake on? It expands one shoe, not both. Which would make it a bugger to get the drum back on straight.

Ya the hub is protruding the parking brakes off but it could be rust or something causing the bottom to not sit fully. I do no with the drum on the top and bottom will teeter back and forth from top to bottom with it all the way on showing that the drum is indeed improportioned if you can understand that don't know if I'm really explaining it right

You mean the flange on the axle? The part the wheel studs are on?
If so, as Scooby Doo says "Rut Row". If the flange is wobbling, in/out as it rotates you somehow bent it. If it's wobbling up and down, you bent the axle shaft.

Well the flange is wobbling but i think it is because the shaft looking at the shaft behind the flange it has a wobble it gets the drum is getting extremely hot and make a winning noise mostly in reverse is there any chance it could just be a bearing
