    up until now i've had the bearings and seals done, the brakes have plenty of ware left in them and theres no leaks or fluids in the drums!

    i will swap cars around as i don't normaly drive this one! then i can keep a better check on it.

    This may seem a silly question Smit, but have you fitted a new set of rear shoes on this car or were they fitted by the last owner and do you know if they have been fitted with the leading edge in the correct position ?

    Check the brake lines for kinks or flat bends.

    just put new pads and discs on the front due to getting low and have been told that one cylinder was seized, i drove it about 6 miles and there was a hint of the problem but not much, i think i will have the rear shoes replaced anyway after this weekend!

    Glad to hear you got it fixed, I guess I have never heard of such a term as Planet Wheels here in the U.S.. I have heard of a Planetary gears in the Transmission but not in the rear end. I guess I will assume that you mean a U.S. term of Spider Gears. If they have chiped teeth, they will make a lot of noise.
