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 .

SOURCE: adjust silverado rear brakes

What year? Most newer trucks have self-sdjusting brakes. Put it in reverse, back up, apply the brakes... repeat until adjusted fully. If not, you need to see if there is a manual adjusting 'star' (if you have drum brakes) that is hanging up.

I have to push brake pedal to the floor almost to get truck to slow down, i have new brake pads and rotors also i have no leaks in brake lines any idea why i have no brake pedal

it could be a brake booster problem or a master cylinder problem. If the rear brakes are shoe brakes try to adjust them. If not then you'll have to determine if it's a bad booster or master. Did you some how get air into the hydrolic system

Rear brakes on 94 suburban

A few things. You may need new shoes (brake job), fuild level may be low, air in the system, proportioning valve needs adjustment (if applicable).

Try backing up several times, 5 to 10 times and hitting the brakes. If you have just had a brake job, the self adjusters will tighten up your brakes.

Let me know what you've done or what you find.

Brake Ajustment on a 1998 Chevy 1500

The rear drum style brakes can be adjusted by removing the rubber plug on the back of the plate, and using a brake tool or flathead you can turn the "star wheel" adjuster to move the shoes closer or further from the drum.

hope this helps! please rate!
