      Can't move it off the drive, rear wheel bearings completely collapsed needs replacement hub/brake drum c/w bearings at least.

        Rear wheel bearings are very easy to replace. Jack up car, chock front wheel, take handbrake off, Remove wheel, remove dust cap, remove split pin, undo castle nut, (left handed thread), pull off drum. Bearings knock out very easily. There's an inner and outer bearing and a spacer. Knock in new bearings and old spacer and reverse what you did to take the drum off.

            If that's happened, just buy a long socket that's the correct size. Much cheaper
