Icon4 Got My Ranger Back from the Accident.. MORE PROBLEMS!

Hey, its me Matt, and I just got back my wrecked truck. Okay. Here is where I start. I drove it home from the shop, and I noticed my Breaks started to smoke and make a HORRIBLE smell, like it was burning. the wheel that was replaced feels like it is way off of the other wheels, example, if I am accelerating, then the wheel that i replaced seems to move faster or slower than the other wheels, and the truck shakes. I don't know what the heck is wrong with it, and I am just getting angry.

Another issue is that when I press on the breaks, my left front break makes a clicking noise, and it sounds like it is tightening up. My dad said it was probablt my bearing messing up since it has gotten colder, but I am not sure.

Sorry about the long thread, but I am very thankful for all the replies. Thanks guys, and PLZ HELP ME!!!!

Icon4 Hey

Got the truck back again, and with another all new left side, it is still messing up again. I think I know the solution to the whole smoking, smelling, lagging thing and that it has something to do with the Emergency/Parking Break. I did leave my Emergency/Parking break on one time, and it did the exact same thing, BEFORE the accident. I believe it is that, does anyone elde think so. That seems like the whole problem, due to everything being replaced twice.

I'd take it back and tell them to check the E brake then.
