I started to replace the rear brakes on my 1999 dually and ended up with a spring I have no idea where it goes. can you give a detailed instruction on removal of brakes so I may know where this spring goes?
Install the spring washer (3). The concave side of the spring washer should face the parking brake lever.
Install the pin (4).
Install the retaining ring (16).
Install the adjuster pin (12) in the shoe (15) so the pin projects 6.8 to 7.0 mm (0.268 to 0.276 inch) from the side of the shoe web where the adjuster actuator is installed.
Apply brake lubricant or equivalent to the threads of the adjuster screw (14) and inside diameter and face of the socket (7). Adequate lubrication is achieved when there is a continuous bead of lubricant at the open end of the adjuster nut (10) and the socket (7) when the threads are fully engaged.
Install the upper return spring (5).
Lay the shoes (1 and 15) on a clean, flat work surface in the position they will be in when installed on the backing plate.
Pull the spring into the groove at the bottom of the anchor plate.
Connect the hold-down pins and the spring assemblies (8).
Install the adjuster actuator (11) over the end of the adjuster pin (12) so the top leg engages the notch in the adjuster screw. NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the actuator spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 83 mm (3.27 inches) .
Install the actuator spring (13). The free end of the adjuster actuator (11) must engage the notch of the adjuster nut.

Block the front tires, jack up the rear end. Remove driveshaft from rear end. Loosen but do not remove the leaf springs and the shock absorbers. Remove the brake lines and the emergency brake cable. Return vehicle to ground and finish removing the leaf springs and the shock absorbers. The vehicle will have to be slightly raised to do this. The other option is to replace the ring and pinion as a unit which requires a completely different set of instructions. What will you be doing, replacing the entire axle and housing or just the ring and pinion?
first you need to find out what has rear disc brake that is rear wheel drive once you find this just measure one the rigth length & same shock,leaf spring hook ups. you maybe have to change master cylinder too
For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!
snap ring? Its a full floater! Take bolts off end of shaft pull shaft out,remove bearing lock nut (the correct socket works so sweet!), pull hub and rotor off, The studs hold the rotor to hub or some have external torx bolts that hold it to the hub.Remove those and you may need to tap hard with a hammer to separate. Where is that snap ring? You will need new seals,and studs are a good idea,how do those parking brake shoes look?
