If it is brake fluid, than you need to replace the wheel cylinder, after time the cup seals that are in there get old and fail. For clarification the "wheel cylinder" is the hydraulic actuator for the brake shoes. with some mechanical know how and a Chiltons manual to guide you, its not all that difficult. Or take it to a local shop, it a routine fix. If its gear oil than you need to replace the axle seal. This is a more advanced repair involving removing the axle and brake assembly on one that side, furthermore you will need to open up the differential to access the C clips that hold the axle in. Although this as well is covered in the Chiltons manual, and Haynes manuals too, the above repair can exceed some common mechanical ability. Hope i helpped some.

The drum isn't leaking, either the wheel cylinder is leaking or the line is leaking

Rear axle swap on a 89 ford bronco 2 4x4 auto trans cant find a matching axle that will fit and allow me to convert the drums to brakes


You might want to research Ford 4x4 Clubs or Bronco Clubs and things like Off-roading publications. Ford use to have performance displays at some Dealerships. There are some specialty shops which can shorten rear axles.and narrow rear ends. One thing to remember is that both the front and rear differentials need matching gear ratios. So whatever you do, think of pairs.

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 rear brakes on a 1989 ford bronco II


The easiest and simpleist way is to jack the truck up, block it and remove both wheels and drums. Do one side at a time and use the other side as a reference. Both sides have to look exactly the same when you are done.

Rear passenger breaks leaking severe from bottom of drum! just baught rig so


sounds like a rear wheel cylinder is leaking. make sure you don't run outta brake fluid.. until u have it repaired .. normaly it takes about an hour and a bit to fix at a shop if thats all that is wrong...your rear brake shoes may be contaminated so braking will be comprimised so replace rear shoes as needed. if it rear axle seal your looking at more labor and more $$$$

Hi, ive worked with bikes mainly and have replaced drum and disc brakes on them. I am working with a ford bronco 2 1988 and would like to know how to replace the brakes on it. I know the front are disc and...


Not much difference replacing the lines and fluids between disk and drum brakes. Huge difference when replaceing the pads. Never force the drum over the pads with a hammer etc. Make sure to take a picture of the assembly before taking it apart when not firmiliar with something. Adjust the brake tension through the site hole once the drum is over the pads.

When doing the disk brakes, make sure that you do not push in the caliper piston at it's edge. Use a C clamp placed dead center on the piston if required. Don't push it in any more than needed.
