Emergency brake problem?

I have a 1996 F-250, after I drive 10 or more miles the lug nuts and rim on the driver side rear wheel got hot to the touch. But only after I use the emergency brake. I bought the truck from a Ford dealership in Oct. 2006, and they put a new emergency brake cable on it the day before I bought it, and it doesn't seem too tight. After I use the emergency brake when I drive off there is a slight squeek from that wheel. The truck has a manual transmission so I do need the emergency brake every once in a while.

You need to adjust the brake cable as it is not adjusted properly and it is sticking also may need to lube it up as well at the rear brakes
