Groan in reverse

This started a few weeks ago but has been getting worse. Is it common for the brakes on these trucks to groan or am I looking at a problem?

I have 2 guesses... either I have a bad caliper or the E-brake shoes have fallen apart.

Sound about right or is there some other common cause?

I'd say you have an issue, check your caliper slide pins and check for stuck calipers. Seem to be a common issue on these trucks to find seized pins or calipers or both. Easy fix either way, you can get pin kits to replace the pins and boots.

Good luck -
Scott

Posting the solution as its a huge pet peeve of mine when your googling a problem and you know damn well the person found the answer but never posted back.

My top slider pin was stuck. About an hour to wrestle it out.

Check that pad wear, seems its been like this a while.



Interestingly enough, the bottom slider was moving freely, but looks like crap, all rusted. The top one which was siezed, was still nice and shiny. For now I clean out the hole and put some synthetic brake grease till payday. It's moving great again.
