ALTHOUGH THE CLUNKING SOUND COMES FROM THE REAR BRAKE AREA IT'S PROBABLY YOUR SLIP YOKE NOT THE BRAKES. TAKE OUT YOUR DRIVE SHAFT CLEAN THE SURFACE OF YOUR SLIP YOKE WITH EMERY CLOTH AND LUBE/GREASE IT INSIDE AND OUT. ANOTHER SOLUTION IS REPLACE THE YOKE WITH A NEW NICKLE PLATED ONE FOR ABOUT $60.00

Depends on the model, alot of the 1500's have drums, and many have discs. Usually, the 2500 and 3500 have all wheel discs.

I'd suggest pulling off the wheels and checking the pads or shoes depending on what type of system it has. It sounds like they may be wore out and are grabbing erratically. A quick inspection may show you the exact problem. However, it could be something more critical, such as a dragging axle, bearing, or even a broken lug could cause that if all the conditions are correct.

I'd definitely pull the rear wheels off and check out what the problem is.

My brakes don't calibrate on their own, therefore they make a squeaking sound when I break how do I fix it


Check rear brakes for:
1. Brake shoe (Cracked or distorted)
2. Installation bolt (Loose)
3. Rear brake drum (Scored)
4. Brake shoe (Dirty).
5. Brake shoe (Glazed)
6. Tension or return spring (Faulty)
7. Anti-squeal shim (Damaged)
8. Shoe hold down spring (Damaged).
6. Apply a thin layer of multipurpose grease on the area between the back plate and the brake shoes by slightly pulling off the shoes with the help of a screw driver.

I am replacing the rear brakes does any one have a drawing for this


I just find this (click over this link for zoom)...

9_30_2011_3_42_10_pm.jpg

Fig. Exploded view of the rear drum brake assembly - LINK
The rear brakes do not require manual adjustment. Adjust the shoes by sharply applying the brake pedal several times while driving the vehicle alternately forwards and backwards. Check the brake operation by making several stops while driving forward. The self-adjusting mechanism will sufficiently adjust the rear brake shoes without any manual tightening at the brake shoe adjuster. If the rear brake shoes are manually adjusted, the additional action of the brake shoe adjuster can cause the brakes to become over-tightened and result in binding or overheated rear brakes.

Hope this helps.

Noise from rear when backing up and applying brakes


This noise indicates that it could be the emergency brake cable. Check to see if it is loose or possibly broken. It could also be a problem in the primary brake system such as worn shoes or pads if it is rear disk. Try the simpler solution first before investing your time and money into new brakes.

2002 Silverado right rear wheel locking up.


You will need to have the parking brake adjusted to the minimum clearance possible and double check the shoes & drum while off.

It sounds as though the shoes are loose, they move forward, grab & unil you center the brakes by applying them and then they release until put into a bind again.

These usually don't get adjusted or even looked at since they are hidden inside the brake rotor hub on the rear wheels.

good luck.

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

2003 PT Cruiser: Scraping Metal sound from BACK left tire area when braking


My rear brakes were making the same sound for over one year. My rear shoes were hard as a stone or glazed. The pads did not look worn, but they made the medal-on-medal sound when I braked. It was pretty loud.

I replaced the brakes shoes and the problem went away. I replaced the shoes myself in about a hour. They were not hard to figure out.
