The shoes may be misadjusted, try jacking it up, and with emergency brake off turn the wheels to see if they freewheel or if they drag-pull the dums off and make sure the shoes are centered on the backing plate, then install the drums again. if they drag, use a screwdriver or star wheel adjusting tool to back the shoes off a little bit.

SOURCE: replaced rear brakes, and the new rear brake drum

No, just back off the adjusters completely before putting on the drums.

I have a 23 t bucket and i cant get a brake pedal.when i bought it had very little brake so i replaced rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and calipers,all new lines and the master cylinder


Once you have bled the air from the brake lines,clamp off the front brake hoses carefully.Does the pedal feel better now?
Then the pad /caliper fit is allowing too much play.Is the pedal the same?Then clamp the rear hose and try the pedal.Is it fine with the rear hose clamped?If so we now know the problem is at the rear brakes.One common low pedal rear brake cause is brake shoes that do not fit the drums.Remove the drums and look at the shoes,are they showing contact wear fully or just in the middle of the shoe?Remove a shoe and place it in the drum.Can you rock the shoe against the drum surface?Once drums have been resurfaced,the shoes will not fit fully against the drum allowing the shoe the flex when applying pressure to it and this can easily create a low soft brake pedal. Of course rear brake adjustment must be correct once brake shoe contact is correct.To correct brake shoe contact,have your shoes re arc-ed to fit resurfaced drums or install new drums.Don't overlook brake master cyl /brake pedal push rod adjustment too.

the shudder is from either the front brake rotors or rear brake drums being warped. Probably the rear brake drums. People use the emergency brake as a parking brake, and when the brakes are hot, it warps the drums from the pressure. The "blades" sound is probably the starter ring gear, or the starter itself.

Brake shudder


If you did nor replace the attaching hardware when replacing the rear shoes and drums then there is a good chance that the rear brakes are not performing the self-adjustment necessary for them to work properly. This results in the rear brakes not braking effectively and placing extra stress of the front brakes. The increased stress on the front brakes causes excessive heat on the rotors and they will warp and this causes the shuddering you feel. Inspect the rear brakes to ensure that they are working as designed.

1999 Chevy tahoe 2dr Brake shudder intermitant hard pedal.


You probably need to surface the rotors and the drums. I have gotten brand new rotors that were so warped that they were below min. thickness (not kidding) after surfacing them. Needless to say, they went back to the parts store. So now I surface every new rotor that I install. Happens to rotors way more than drums, but have hade a couple of drums that were warped when new so I check them before installing them. Good luck. Hope this helps.

My daewoo nubira 98 makes a catching noise evreytime the rear wheels spin round while im braking from the rear brakes after ive just had new drums cylinders and shoes fitted. is it because its all new and...


Get your brakes checked by whoever done them.

Brakes shouldn't having catching sounds, I would remove the drums and check for any foreign items. New brakes you would sometimes hear a rubbing sound, but nothing sharp and catching as such.

Check: shoes for foreign bits, even small amounts of gravel etc,
Inside of drums for damage.
Shoe springs are all attached and connected to the right places.
Cylinders are not loose.

This should solve your problem.

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.

Rear brakes wont apply consistantly


1- brake system low on fluid,
2- improperly bled (air in lines).
3- Master cylinder (applies equal pressure to all 4 cylinders) is bad.
