I have a 99 silverado z71, noticed a squeaking noise from what i thought was the brakes, replaced all the pads, and noticed my drivers side rear wheel is locked up. Any ideas what the issue is

first block up the front wheels so the truck can't roll. Jack up the drivers side wheel. Try to move it. If it is locked up loosen the brake bleeder screw and see if that frees up the wheel. If it is still locked up, remove the wheel and remove the brake caliper. Check to see if you can turn the rotor with the brakes off. If you can't move the rotor the parking brake might be stuck on inside the rotor. Have someone apply the parking brake and then release it. see if the brake cable is freely moving in and out. If you can remove the rotor, take it off and see if the axle bearing is froze up to the axle. little by little something is bound to show up as to why the wheel won't turn. Wheel stuck on the caliper? Maybe the caliper wasn't on right. Make sure you use jack stands. hydraulic and mechanical jacks are for lifting and not for holding. you don't want the jack to go down if you are working on the vehicle (it happens more often than you think)
