Default 2000 Ranger brakes sticking

I'm having an issue with my rear brakes sticking, i actually thought there was something wrong with the U-Joint or tranny since it wouldn't move at all until i put alot of gas to it. It seems to "bang" when it comes loose, runs for a bit then "bang" again and locks up the rear end. I had a chevy that lost a brake line and i had to use the e-brake to stop it and it kinda sounded like that same "bang"---is it possible that the parking brake is the issue? I checked that when it first acted up, i thought it was engaged since the engine was wanting to run, but the truck wouldnt move. THanks!!!!

okay nevermind----this all went bad at 5am as i was leaving for work, so i got to check it when i got home later---turned out that one of the brake shoes broke in half and a HUGE piece of that wedged itself in between the springs and forced the driver side brake locked, i guess it would work loose off and on until it started really screwin things up----THANKS ANYHOW!!!
