SOURCE: Are the rear drum brakes on 1997 stratus self adjusting or manual

It should be self adjusting (when u back up and apply the brakes, it adjusts ), and can also be manually adjusted (thru removal of the rubber plug on the backing plate). The adjuster (star wheel) can seize due to rusting and it won't adjust automatically or manually. Whenever u do a brake job, spray it w/ wd-40 and turn it back and forth several times to make sure it is free, then I put a dab of high temp. brake grease on the threads (only a small amount, as u don't want it dropping off and getting on the brake shoes).

SOURCE: brake line diagram

glennerick, soak them with WD-40 or similar penetrating lubricant, respraying 3 or 4 times a day for a couple days (more days if you have the time). The connections will be too corroded for a wrench, so use vise grip pliers to separate connections. It isn't easy, but it's the best way. As far as the brake line diagram, just replace a section at a time using the old lines as your guide. You can carefully bend them to roughly match the original. They don't have to be exact, just make sure they don't hang down where something can snag on them from the road, keep them away from moving suspension parts (shocks) and don't let them touch exhaust components. If you need further help, let me know. You may want to just hack saw thru the lines so you can get it in a vise to easily remove the rusted lines. (or even bring it to a parts store and get a new connection).

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 .

sounds like you have it apart and not so sure about reassembly. If these are drum brakes try looking at the drum brake change videos on Youtube, ericthecarguy (ETCG) is a good one. Drum brakes are all basically similar with the main difference usually around self adjusters.

Diagram for right rear brake assembly for a 1993 chrylser lebaron


it's a standard leading trailing bendix brake system, small shoe to the front, larger shoe to the rear. The spring are ease. THE springs that look the same go behind the shoes, the biggest spring goes at the top of the brake assembly, and the spring thats medium goes on the bottem. Don't forget the horse shoe clip to the e-brake cable. The adjustment peice goes near the top. Adjust it all the way and spin the drum while you use the mopar adjustment tool to set the e-brake adjust ment. you should get 1/2 to one full rotation before the drum drum stops spinning. don't forget to gravitey bleed your brake (open the rear bleed screws at the same time, then the front).

Having brake lock problems with my 1964 GTO. Replaced wheel cylinders, emergency brake cables and still experiencing rear brake lock after driving for awhile. Any ideas?


check to make sure you have the primary and secondary brake shoes on correctly, the longer shoe attaches to the rear side of the backing plate...also check to see if you have your starwheel adjuster on correctly...

Very poor brake performance after changing rear shoes


It sounds like your self-adjusters are not assembled correctly allowing them to back off when braking.
