Question: What else could go wrong?

I have a 02 Dodge Caravan. I recently replaced the pads rotors drums and.springs. NOW this morning i hear grinding in the back and it feels like my van is kind of dragging instead of maintaining speed. Not too bad but can still feel the difference. Maybe a stuck brake? Somethin broken? Master Cylinder? I also have a warranty on my engine trans and drive train. Would the problem POSSIBLY be.covered?
