Rear wheel hard to move

Probably just need to back off the brake adjustment because the ID of the new drum is a little smaller.

My '89 DL wagon has a "hill hold" feature that had me puzzled for quite a while. Kept the back wheels from turning til I got it adjusted right...

the axle nuts need to be torqued, not snugged and backed off like a normal wheel bearing castle nut. torque is 140 lbs but it can take more than that. I generally torque to 140 then over torque it a bit to line up a hole.

agree. On the 4wd models, the nuts should be torqued up as the shaft is spinning with the wheel. Different for the rear end of the 2wd model.
Sounds like the pads grabbing to me also.
The rear drums are self adjusting. I've seen it done where the pads were backed right off, and then you simply press on the brake pedal to bring them in far enough.
But double check this, cos all of my cars have had the disc brake rear end.
