SOURCE: where doe's that spring go on rear brake drums 1996 chevy truck every thing is at top not at bottom, star wheel adjuster?

there should be several springs. first there are (2) real short springs that hold the shoes to the dust cover/back plate. they go in the center of each shoe. then there is a short spring that goes at the bottom where the adjuster is located. there should be a hole in each shoe. finally there is a long spring that goes at the top where your brake cylinder is and this is what gets attched last after your emergancy brake levers are placed between the shoes .

SOURCE: adjust silverado rear brakes

What year? Most newer trucks have self-sdjusting brakes. Put it in reverse, back up, apply the brakes... repeat until adjusted fully. If not, you need to see if there is a manual adjusting 'star' (if you have drum brakes) that is hanging up.

No brake lights


Hello: There is a module for the rear lights on the inside of the rear fender (passenger side) check the connections. This module has a failure rate. Do the 4-way flashers work in the rear? Also the rear brake lights are wired through the signal light switch. You will have to diagnose it step by step.

2007 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD - Rear Brakes are wearing faster than front brakes


Generally speaking, the front brakes do most of the work of stopping--typically between 70-90%. The potential reasons for your truck's rear brakes wearing abnormally quickly include:

--the adjuster(s) on your rear drum brakes were adjusted too tight. (I'm pretty sure you have drum brakes in the rear.)

--You are doing a lot of heavy towing or hauling which is transferring more of the weight to the rear brakes. You'd have to be doing this often, though, and frequently meeting or exceeding the capacity of your vehicle to tow or haul.

--The proportioning valve, the master cylinder or a brake line somewhere is damaged, causing more hydraulic pressure than is correct to be applied to the rear brakes.

-- Your parking brake cable is kinked or damaged, causing the rear brakes to constantly rub. You'd likely smell burning brakes and notice heat from the wheels.

-- Your rear drum brakes are clogged up with brake dust and the springs cannot properly retract the brake shoes, resulting in constant rubbing.

Most likely one of these issues is your problem if you have premature rear brake wear.

How do i adjust the rear parking brake on a 2004 chevy silverado 2500 hd 4x4


on the 04 chevy silverado theirs cable equilizers that stable your cables of your parking brakes check to see if those arent loose or damaged in anyway if so replace if not remove the rear wheels and use a brake spoon to spin the adjuster nut on the o4 chevy their is not slots in the sides of the brake drum or the dust shield so it is a hastle trying to find if your on the adjuster or not but once you tinker with it for a while you will get the hang of it

I have a 2005 chevy silverado with drum rear brakes and it seems like i'm only useing my front brakes even though i adjust them it seems like they won't stay to wear i feel it in the brake pedal.....also...


The rear brakes normally only account for about 25% of your braking power. Due to engine weight being over the front wheels, and the way that the front settles down when braking, it's proportioned that way to get the best braking performance, especially in a pickup. Unless you change the proportioning valve, the amount of braking that the rear wheels do will not change. As for the brake dust, some types of pads do that more than others, and with disk brakes, this is normal.

2005 chevy silverado 1500 clunk in rear when i take off from a stop


I have the same problem with my 05 with 75,000 miles. With mine brake dust builds up in rear drums and causes sticking. Remove rear wheels and drums and clean everything with brake clean. I do it every 12 to 16 months and solves the problem.

Brake Ajustment on a 1998 Chevy 1500


The rear drum style brakes can be adjusted by removing the rubber plug on the back of the plate, and using a brake tool or flathead you can turn the "star wheel" adjuster to move the shoes closer or further from the drum.

hope this helps! please rate!
