You have something shifting when yoou go around corners, this is not good, you need to jack up the entire rear end and check out everything. movement brakes, axles, everything.

I broke the housing a few years ago on my 10 bolt and it didn't really make the brakes stick, but things were getting real loose. It's not good.
Check it out before anything bad or any worse damage if any occurs.

i took it back to the garage
rear end was fine
they said something about some clutch on the brake was sticking

but it was definately not the rear end...they pryed it loose and were turning the wheels freely, then whenever i hit the brakes the first time it happend again

Then remove the drum and spray brake cleaner all over everything, see if you can see any parts that have obvious damage, make sure there is no oil on the shoes.

Mine sticks real bad when it gets wet with water, i need to tear mine apart as well.
But there is definately something not right within that assembly. Best i can say is just check it out. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
