Wouldn't it have been easier to spend the $11 to buy a new hardware kit than to try and clean the old up? The pins looked a little too rusty and typically when they get so rusty they tend to get real weak.

Thanks you for this video. I was almost to the point of panic when assembling my rear brakes. The video helped me a lot . The shop manual was not detailed enough. The last time I had done rear brakes was when I was in my twenties.

Mitchell Deliman says:

Make sure to release the parking brake. Also the shoes may have worn into and made a channel with a ridge effectively making the hammer method a no go. Collapse (deadjust) the shoes using a brake spoon through the slot in the backing plate. If deadjusted first it makes drum removal easiser. But yea the hammer is standard practice except for ball joints ; I dont think its a good idea to hammer on ball joints. Thanks for making the video. <:)>

Does this apply for 01 4×4 Durango as well?

Henry Enriquez says:

Chris Oglesby says:

Very helpful. Now I can put my brakes bact together. Wheel cylinder blew out 3 days ago and i took apart but had a few things that didnt fit. After watching this video i know exactly where everything goes without getting aggravated.


Thanks for making and posting the how to. An excellent refresher having not replaced drum brakes in a long time. Great attention to detail!

No brake clean and snap torquing the lugs… use brake clean to clean off the oil that comes on all brakes to keep from rusting on the shelf or in transit. May not look like it but it’s always good to do. Snap torquing is never good either.
