OK tubs out no socks or anything other than the "normal" build up of gunk. Need to check anything before removing brake and drive assembly?

Removed brake and drive assembly, some oil dripped out but other than that it looks OK to me. What would I be looking for?

The tub is tilted toward the back, mean anything? Checked the floor braces they are close to level.

Anything left to check?

Do I need to reinstall the drive and the inner tube to check if it spins easily?

That part up inside looks like it could be the problem.
