Re: brakes and a weird axle??
It is unclear to me... Is the thing metal thing on the front axle or the rear???
As far as the proble with your breaks. It could be a few things. I will assum that since you said you just had them worked on the breaks themselfs are fine.
One possibility is that the rear breaks are not adjusted correctly. Lift the rear of the truck on Jack stands. Put truck in gear, (Is truck auto) if it is auto put it in D, if it is Manual put it in 1st Low. Now with the rear wheels turning hit the breaks. The fronts are just sitting there so they will not change. But if you hit the breaks and the rears continue to spin... Bang there is your problem. Your rear breaks are not correctly adjusted. Get them adjusted.
Another question for you... Does your Ebreak work? If it does work, then chances are that your rear breaks are OK.
If that check test out correctly then move on to the next one. Check the break fluid. There may be air in your lines. The way to check/fix this is the bleed the break lines.
I think then you will be good to go.
