The o-ring came in and everything is in place again. I took it for another neighborhood drive and it feels great ... but I am getting an awful scraping sound from back there now, accompanied by a very high-pitched squeak, both at wheel speed. It sounds to me like it's the dust shield or the parking brake causing it, although it's extremely hard to tell because I can really only hear it when I'm passing parking cars or buildings fairly closely (I guess it resonates). I couldn't hear any scraping from the wheels when I turned them by hand, but I'll play around with it later. Anything else I should be worried about that would cause a scraping in time with wheel speed?
