brake noise

Just replaced rotors, pads, calipers on my 2001 F250- after a test drive I hear a noise coming from rear drivers side.... sounds like something it hitting since it coincides with speed (like hitting the rim)- how do i jack up truck and get rear wheels to spin freely so I can examine? Is that even possible?

You can jack up the axle and the wheel will turn if the transmission is in neutral BUT be sure the wheels that are on the ground are blocked so the vehicle can't roll while you check out the wheel!
