Can you walk me through the steps on how to replace rear brake shoes on a 1989 bronco II

The best way to do it , is remove the drums from both sides. Take one side apart. When putting back together, look at the other side, just remember it is opposite from the side you\'re working on. springs are in the same place, just backwards. Do NOT get parts from one side mixed...They are color coded. Get the hardware kits. They wont come with the slack adjusters. Make sure the adjusters are clean and move freely. Most adjusters are screw type, some (Ford) have rachet types. If they look worn, they are bad. Replace them also. Lude them with anti sleaze/ silver nitrate.

How do you replace the rear brakes on a 2001 Ford F250

First, get a set of brake shoes.
Second pull off wheels on both sides then remove the brake drums on both sides.
On one side pull off brake shoes springs clamps ect.
Using the side not dissasembled as an example, use it as a reference while assembling the side apart. Then pull apart the other side, and use the side reassembled to put together that side using it as a reference.
Replace drums and wheels, good luck, and give me a nice vote please.

Need a diagram of a brum brake assembley, cant remember how to put it bk together

If you just have one side apart, open up the other side and look, it's a mirror image.

If both are apart, suggest finding someone that knows brakes well to help, or sometimes a trip to the library can be good, most have auto repair manuals.

Looking for diagram of rear brakes - doing brake job

Pull both wheels off, do one at a time, use the other side as a guide to put it back together, I am a retired auto mechanic and this is the best way to do the job, also remember the larger shoe always goes to the back.
