Sasquatch's Project "Working Emergency Brake" & Rear Brake Replacement w/PNs

All written by Brett, I just hosted the pictures and pieced it back together...

Last week my passenger rear brake caliper piston semi froze up semi compressed against the rotor for a good 45 minutes, not enough to get red-hot but close enough to bot allow you to touch the wheel. Parking brake has never worked right, even new they were inadequate. So I finally had enough and decided to fix the entire rear brake setup.

Here in SE TX the gulf coast/beach is just a part of life but takes it toll on brakes which is what I think happened to the piston. I actually removed the caliper, cycled the brake piston at the pedal a couple dozen times which broke the corrosion ridge and held me over until parts arrived.

I included the pics for PART NUMBERS for anyone wanting to know "what" you need. I'm using the rust converter on the internals for the emergency brake components, axle body, 3 springs, star-adjuster, shoe retainers and e-brake lever mechanism. The 2000 deg header paint is for the rotors in the pics.
I'll have to find the PN for the rotors, but they are Duralast (non-scrap steel) rotors.



Paint & Rust Converter



The bag on the right came with the rear disc pads, you don't need the bad on the left unless you're just replacing sliders and boots.



Ceramic pads are going on this time



The new rear shoes which appear to be about 3x thicker than my old ones.



New zinc calipers

Time to follow this one.. Getting close to needing mine done. Saltwater does a number also. Though strangely my parking brake still works fine, go figure..

This is prob a dumb question, but for the parking brake shoes, do you need one set or two? My rear brakes are about to need replacing and wanna do the parking brake as well.

Here so it's easy to find. Thanks Ron, and thanks PhrogMech46 for finding that thread.

I also adjust with the rotor off. It's a lot easier.
It can be done with everything still on, but it's a little frustrating at times.
The access slot is hard to get to.

Rather, how many "clicks" do you have to turn the starwheel? I figured out that drivers side, clockwise, passenger side, counterclockwise,,.....now just need to know how many clicks to turn the f-er.

Every vehicle is going to vary, stretch of the brake cables, shoe wear, drum wear, etc. You need to take it to just where the parking brake shoes drag on the inside of the rotor, then back it off one.
