Rear end smoke

Well, My rear end drum brakes need a job done. Ill do wheel bearings as wel as long as I am back there.

I have never done a drum brakes re-build. Is there a kit or something that I can buy from a vendor?

I know there are brake pads inside the drums that need to be replaced but all i have ever done is front end work and fluid changes.

need input, thanks. Lewis

p.s. I knew I was going to need a brake job on the rear but I did feel any symptoms of it going out until today, when after I parked I smelled some burning from the left rear.

Drum brakes aren't hard just a pain in the rear. Get a haynes manual or something they usually tell you what order to install the springs for the easiest way. Leave one side together so you have something to reference to also

any auto place (auto zone, NAPA, Checker) has drum brake spring kits, and you prob should get your drums machined too. brakes aren't a big deal but gets messy tearing in to replace axle seals bearing and stuff.... up to you tho

FYI they are brake shoes...

that should be all you need.

Shoes and a spring kit. If you are going to remove the hub and replace bearings some new seals as well!

Get a small sledge hammer. I had to beat my drums off. And just in case someone tells you that you have to take the axles out........you don't. Once the drums are off it is pretty much like any other drum brake set up.
