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.

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.

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
