[Chrysler300] Sudden drive train lock-up





 When I backed it up, after approx 3 ft the drive locked up sharply, as though I had hit something. But I hadn’t,  and all 4 wheels were clear. It did the same thing going forward-locking up after just a few feet.I did this several times and the distances prior to lockup seemed the same.
I was able to give it a lot of gas and slowly it would move, but something was straining.

This afternoon, after completing new starter motor installation, I dropped the driveshaft to have a suspect rear U-joint replaced tomorrow, but I see nothing which looked like it was hitting.
On jack stands under the axle, I also am able to rotate both rear wheels in either direction continuously without a lock up. My next step is to remove both rear drums and ensure there are no  broken  brake springs, but if I don’t see anything there, I have no idea where to look next. There are no unusual noises when I rotate the wheels.
Any suggestions?

Thanks, MIke Moore
