    Am presuming prop, diff and half shaft all OK?

    Could be a massively failed wheel bearing (but not sure wheel would lock up) or something bad with brakes - have come across with bits fitted poorly and coming loose

    You got shoes or discs on yours?

    Have also come across the mud guard at the back of the disc causing problems catching, so worth checking that out as well - number of the guys have removed this completely

    Its a collapsed wheel bearing, willing to wager a beer or two if anybody is interested?

    the squeak was it running dry, then the lock was it getting hot and expanding, let it cool for a while and it will release but sound terrible, had it on mine more than once sadly.
