I have a 99 Dakota and when I changed the rear brakes there was noting special I had to do to them. just remember with any rear "drum" brakes. you need to make sure when you replace the shoes that you also replace the hardware (tension springs, hold down springs). If you go to any auto part store and ask them for the rear brake hardware kit they will know what you are talking about.
dont over tighten shoes to drum
Bleed brakes after changing pads to extract any air bobbles.
I'm a woman that has not changed brakes for about 20 years and I need refreshing.
pad brakes are disc brakes, it's known as changing brake pads for disc setup and changing brake shoes with drum brake setup.

Changing the brakes on a Toyota sienna will cost approximately $350. The cost can vary greatly from mechanic to mechanic. Changing the brakes yourself will cost about $50.
No you dont need to bleed the brakes if you are just changing the pads, there are more ansers to car maintenance questions at ; www.carbasics.co.uk
no different then changing the brakes on any other car all u need is some c clamps and what ever u would normally use elsewhere
there is nothing special about the rear brakes, if you have changed any kind of rear brakes on anything else, you will be able to handle the job. if not, spend the $20 and buy yourself a manual.....
Disc Brakes should be the answer to the question.
I don't think your brakes have anything to do with that one!
No, they are the same for the most part.

No you don't, the front and rear brakes are independent of one another. -Sean Ford Mechanic Riverside,CA
If the brake drums are 9 inches wide on the inside, they are 9 inch brakes; 10 inches wide, 10 inch brakes.
The most dedicated or special tool one must have to change the brakes is Knowledge or the ability to follow directions carefully and closely. Remember. It is easy to get something rolling, the trick is to stop it from doing so quickly when necessary. Brakes are simple but there is a fine line between getting the job done and doing it correctly, and experience or a good teacher certaily makes this difference. Y-THINK-Y
To bleed the ABS brakes on a 1998 Dodge Dakota 4 x 4, two people are needed. One person needs to pump the brakes while the other opens the bleeder and then closes it making sure all air is out of the system.
You bleed the brakes just like you bleed any other cars brakes, there is no special way to bleed anti-lock brakes.
TRy changing your brakes and closing your doors while driving.
