Rear brakes - 1 ton van
« on: April 15, 2008, 06:41:51 PM »

More fun with the van at work.  This is a '97 Dodge B3500.  Sounds like it needs new shoes on the back breaks, and I realised that I'm not sure exactly how this comes apart.
 
From looking at the van, and some stuff online, I think I've got it, but wanted to double check.
 
Am I correct that you have to undo the 8 bolts on the hub and remove the axle, and then the brake drum has it's own bearings kind of like a front drum setup?

Yes you are.
 
That's like a 3" spindle nut.  You have to bend the keeper and then you can usually tap the nut around with a small chisel and hammer.  But a spindle socket is suggested

Thanks for the info.
 
Took almost 5 hours but I got the new shoes on.
 
I'm gonna need to eat more spinnach before I mess with those springs again.
