rubber burning. Today it only makes a small grinding noise sometimes that sounds like it is coming from the passenger side wheel. Does anyone have any ideas about what this could be?

from what you describe, its sounds like possibly you have a rear axle seal that has leaked rearend grease onto your brake shoes and they could have come apart. That may have been the noise you heard, and thats why you're getting a metal to metal sound now. also burning axle grease CAN smell like rubber. Have those rear brakes checked as well as the axle seal. If the seal is leaking, it will be obvious when you remove the brake drum. GOOD LUCK!
