Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Aaron, I believe you'll find that a brake shoe retainer or one of the springs has come adrift in the assembly. ou may like to do the job yourself or take it to a shop. If you would like to do the job, let me know and we'll walk through it together. You will probably need replacement parts, so keep that in mind when deciding. Regards John

you need to inspect your backing plates for grooves in the pads where the brake shoes contact the backing plate. during a break job these spots are supposed to be lubed with proper non grease brake backing plate lube. some people use never sieze compound... also make sure brake shoes were installed correctly having the primary and secondary shoe correctly in it's place, if you have grooves in your backing plates then the shoes will bounce up and down as they move across the groves this will make a clicking noise, also have seen cracked brake drums make noise... give close inspection with wheels off , if you can jack rear of car off ground support with jack stands , chalk front wheels , then remove wheels on both sides but use a lug nut to hold brake drum on securley, now have someone watch and listen and watch as you let wheels spin under power of engine at low rpm , inspect and watch for possible clues...please rate my help, thanks...
