Had my '94 Dodge Caravan SE 3.3L V6 right-rear wheel cylinder reviewed & after leaving mechanic shop (10-15 mins) later my entire HUB was dismantled while driving. Wheel tilted to one side. Towed car to shop for repair. Curious to know whether the individual made a costly mistake when re-mounting my wheel or is it known that a bad cylinder could lead to a bad HUB? No prior noise or vibration until the DRUM was removed to view leakage from the cylinder. Please advise. Thank you for your assistance.
Can a bad right-rear wheel cylinder lead to a destroyed rear-wheel HUB assembly on 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan

Absolute mechanic error. No question at all. Your wheel cylinder is not even relevant to the hub and mounting. Good luck - hopefully they will step up and handle the issue.
