Here is a strange one.
Doing the rear brakes on my 2007 RR SC.
One wheel jacked, car in neutral.
Parking brake adjuster backed all the way out.
Hub will spin with some effort when rotor is not on.
Same with rotor resting on lugs.
Same with rotor retaining screw/bolt slightly loose.
Once rotor retaining bolt is slightly torqued, the axel will not spin by hand.
The bolt is not fouling on anything, nor is the disc from what I can see.

Anyone else experience this?

Did the wheel rotate before you took anything off - and it was jacked up as you described?

So the calliper is removed and pads off. So perhaps wear in the drum (or not) and shoe riding on the lip when rotor is tight as shoe could be misaligned due to amount of looseness. a guess based on the pad/shoe combo.

It is a head scratcher. Since this is a brake/rotor job, the caliper carrier/shoes/caliper is off. Just the disc remains. One wheel off the ground. Spins pretty freely with old disc in place. So it appears to point to the new disc sizing (it is aftermarket - R1 Concepts), but I'd love just to understand the mechanics of why/how it is being prevented from spinning.

Last time I replaced my rotors I did a physical comparison against the rotor being removed - might want to try that.
