you will ned to remove the back tires and then remove the rear drums, there may be two small holes that bolt screw int the bolt size 8mmx1.25. you want them to be about an inch long, just thread them and keep tighting them and the drum should come off if the shoes are less 1/8 inch thick they need to be replaced. remove the springs PAY ATTENTION how they come off, and reinstall

Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake assembly spring. The brake shoes will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake shoes.

If you're talking about the brake drums, (which need to be removed to inspect or replace the brake shoes inside), they just slide off. First, remove the wheel. Next, wiggle and pull the brake drum (the dinner-plate sized cast-iron bowl-shaped cover) with both hands until it slides off the lugnut studs. Now you can inspect the brake parts.

I got this info out of the scheduled maintenance guide... hope this helps. Change oil and oil filter. Inspect brakes pads/shoes/rotors/drums, brake lines and hoses, and parking brake system. Inspect wheel ends for endplay and noise. Inspect engine cooling system and hoses. Inspect exhaust system and heat shields. Inspect steering linkage, suspension, and if equipped driveshaft and ball joints. Inspect tires for wear and rotate. Replace engine air filter. Replace fuel filter. Replace cabin air filter, if equipped. Change automatic transmission/transaxle fluid on all vehicles equipped with AX4S,4F50N,4R100,4F27E. Inspect automatic transmission fluid on all other vehicles, if equipped with dipstick.

The best place to have your brakes replaced at would be Midas they would be able to replace both your brake shoes and even brake calibers if they need replaced.

When the shoes/pads have less than 10% of lining left. When shoes/pads are cracked or damaged. When the drums/rotors are replaced.

Brake shoes worn out. Replace them and have the drumns resurfaced.

User Avatar

To change the brake shoes, remove the tire, rim and axel after you have the car lifted. You can then go on to remove the old brake shoe and replace it with a new one.

You don't. You replace the worn out rear break shoes. If that doesn't do it you need to replace the stretched E brake cable.

I suggest you get a manual on your car from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM or MOTORLIT.COM

Master cylinder or drum brake (hydraulic slave) wheel cylinder or disc brake caliper cylinder? drum brake shoes rear

If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.

If it is a drum brake system, then you will have to remove the wheel ,drum, brake shoes, and hydraulic brake line , then remove and replace the cylinder with a new one re-assemble and bleed the hydraulic brake system

The make and model of truck doesn't matter. When the shoes get down to 1/4 inch, you replace them.
