Was out on some semi rough roads this weekend in my 92 loyale when all of a sudden I started hearing a super loud clacking/scraping? from my passenger side rear wheel. I checked it out and couldn't see anything obvious. I started driving again to hear it and it stopped after a few more feet so I kept on cruising. Then about 10 minutes later, it started happening again. Same routine, hopped out looked around and couldn't see anything but the wheel its self was super hot, like almost burned my hand. I still had to get to point B so I decided to just keep cruising and figure it out when I got there. The sound continued for a discomforting amount of time, maybe a mile, but at one point when I had to slow way down to get over a rut, it just stopped and hasn't started since. I made it out of the woods and ~100 miles on paved roads since with no issues. But I'm not a fan of problems that come and go as they please without being "addressed".
I did the wheel bearing on that wheel recently, and since it was my first time I am suspicious of it... I also engaged the 4wd a few times but it didn't seem to correlated strongly with it...
Any suggestions on what this could be?
Thanks in advance
