I find that it's easiest to use a piece of rope about 1/4 inch diameter, hook it on the spring end, and pull it until you can get it hooked on the cam pin.

Truck? Car? 1/2 Ton? 1 Ton?


Either way... the proper tool makes it fairly easy but can be done with a little finesse with a flathead screwdriver. Place the hook of the spring on the shaft of the screwdriver and the blade on the spring mount point, stretch spring until it slides down screwdriver shaft and onto mounting point. Unless you are dealing with a 1 Ton then the proper tool will have to be obtained

How can I get the springs back on rear brake pads on 1999 suburban? I took the brakes off and now I am having problems putting the springs back on. Any solutions on how to make this a little easier?


there is no springs on brake pads,
if you mean rear drum ,brake shoes,which springs are you having trouble with,the round cylinder springs that hold the shoes fast to the backing plate or the the return springs that bring the shoes back after being pushed out by wheel cylinders.

How to change brake shoes on rear drums of a 2006 chevrolet hhr. Cannot find any manuals for this vehicle model. no diagrams.


most drum brakes are pretty much the same. once you've got the wheel off, it is just a matter of beating on the drum until it releases. get a big hammer and beat the living daylights outta the drum, but try not dent it or break it... it will eventually release. the brake shoes are in there. take a picture of them if you want, so you can refer to it when you put all those springs back in there. also take both wheels off and work on one side at a time so that you can refer to the other side if you get confused. you must bleed your brakes when you are done so find a helper to pump the brake pedal while you operate the bleeder valve.

My 2006 Mazda Tribute makes a pulsating noise when I'm almost at a complete stop. Front brakes have been replaced at dealer but noise has returned.


If you have drum brakes in back instead of disc brakes, that could be your problem. Very common noise with drums. Pads, springs, could be sticking, or pistons if it is disc brakes

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
