Don't do it before you have to - but if you've got to here you go . . .
HINT: You have to pull both rear axles so make sure you've got plenty of side clearance and clean area to lay the interior axle parts on - to keep from contaminating upon rebuild. An impact wrench is needed as well as a large spindle socket. Measure the spindle nut then go purchase your socket. I don't think you can do this job w/o it as you will mess up your parts if you beat it off.

DISASSEMBLY:
1. Raise and support the vehicle
2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly
3. Remove the disc brake caliper
3.1 Remove top of Master Cylinder and keep open
3.2 Compress the disc brake caliper w/C clamp & wood block
3.3 Remove the caliper pin bolts
3.4 Remove the banjo bolts (replace the copper washer upon reinstallation)
3.5 Use coat hanger to support caliper assy out of way
4. Remove spindle nut
5. Remove axle shaft out of axle housing (if dually) - pull it straight out. Be careful not to ding the interior spline on the way out.
6. Remove hub and rotor assembly

[Note: It's a good time to replace parking brake pads too. You're right there.]

REASSEMBLY:
Is the reversal of dis-assembly and removal. Make sure you use new copper washers for your banjo bolts upon reassembly). Good luck.

Need instructions for installing parking brake shoes on a 2001 Dodge 3500 pickup


This is a big job for such a small part. I suggest you repair/replace rotors, pads, and anything else back there while you are at it. You will need to remove both wheels on both sides, as well as the axles (I think). See my earlier post on Rear Rotor removal to see how this is done.

You will need a large spindle nut to remove the axles.

DISASSEMBLY:
Once you have access to the parking brakes inside the rotor hat:
1. Lock out the parking brake w/a pair of Vise grips (on the parking brake cable under the cab)
2. Disengage teh park brake cable from behind the rotor assembly to allow easier disassembly of the parking brake shoes.
3. Disassemble the rear park brake shoes.

REASSEMBLY:
1. Reassemble the rear parking brake shoes. This is a typical, small brake drum configuration. Do one side at a time - so you can see how to reassemble each small part. Keep the springs and parts oriented the same: front to front and interior to interior, etc.
2. Release the parking brake cable
3. Install the disc brake rotor(s)
4. Install the disc brake caliper(s)
5. Install tire & wheel assembly
6. Lower the vehicle

Need to remove and replace rear rotor


You have to remove the axle shafts first as it has a full-floating axle, then pull rotor and hub off the axle housing. Unbolt rotors from hub. Check bearings and seals in hubs and the axle snouts where the bearings run before installing. Put new flange gaskets on axle and torque flange bolts to 95 ft-lbs.
