Bad Wheel Bearings??

Hey Guys, I have a 1991 F-250 5.0 v8 and lately, I've noticed a scraping sound from the rear axel near both wheels. I pulled and replaced the breaks but it wasn't that. I'm wondering if it might be the wheel bearings and just wanted to ask around to see. Thanks

Could be, they are loose bearings, have to pull the shafts to check, they typ are pretty robust but it would be somewhat unusual that they would both go bad at same time. Might want to do some more checking to confirm something else is rubbing on something back there first!

How about emergency brakes on the rear wheels?

i would bet money on rusted backing plates. look for shiny spots where the drum could hit.

I couldn't locate if that truck uses rear drums or rotors.
If it uses drums.... the main brakes are also the emergency brakes.
If it uses rotors.... the emergency brakes are behind the rotor.
