REAR BREAKS VIBRATE WHEN APPLYING BREAKS.


If it has drum brakes get the drums machined or if it has discs get the discs machined to stop the vibration as with age and heat and water splashes over time the discs and or drums go out of round causing the pads(discs) shoes (drum brakes)to cause a vibration when they are applied,

Since replacing rear pads, only both rear breaks are on, slightly truck will not roll freely wasupppppppp with that


If I am correct that truck has rear drum breaks? If this is the case the adjusters sound as if they were not brought in enough for proper clearance between the drums and shoes. If this is it I'd remove the rear drums and adjust for proper clearance (there should be no drag with drum breaks. If they are disk breaks I'd say the calipers are stuck and keeping tight on the discs; if this is the case I'd replace that calipers with new or rebuilt units.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Cant remove rear break disc


The reason is that the the emergency brake drums are on the inside of the disc. It will probably take a lot of force or a rubber malet to get it off!

Emergency break needs adjustment


If you have disc brakes in the rear it is very simple. The rear disc has a inner drum that has small brake shoes. These shoes rarely wear out. To adjust it take off the rear tire. Inside the rear of the unit is a little rubber plug. Remove it. Inside is a clicker that can be adjusted with a small screwdriver. One way on the clicker will tighten the other loosen. Spin the rear wheel hub until you feel it tighten as you move the clicker expander. You will feel the hub getting tigher harder to turn and hear the pads making contact with the inner drum. Repeat on the other rear drum. They are supposed to be self adjusting, but I find this not true.
