    I called in to price pads & cylinders for my rear brakes and he asked me if they were 9 or 10 inch. What size are they?

    I'm finally doing this I've been way distracted. If I hadn't dinged up that fender I might still be procrastinating
    Any vids on these particular drums? I can't see under well and I want to know exactly what it should look like when I set them as its no fun getting down like that. Man they were full of dirt and dust it piled up a few inches deep! but the drum and springs look only a couple years old? I've had it for about 14 and never did them as I got it at 80K and have only put 30K on it. I think I will still install the new drums just to be sure as it was locking up when I let it set for a month or more last winter. Anyway got one Gabriel Spring assist shock on, new wheel cylinder and part of the new shoe set.

    EDIT- Just found this diagram http://www.mightyram50.net/vbulletin...3&d=1374636952

    The diagram doesn't seem to have all the same bits my drum has.

    the 85 has 9" drums - be sure they are for 83 on up - 82 and down are different.

    Yea I ordered for the 9s. I think I'll just remove the other wheel in the morning to compare things to.

    I got the Centric 11105150 and the rear pads both had the lower pin for the self adjuster lever pressed in the wrong direction. I have a press so I fixed it by pushing them out and back in the right way.
    The EIS H17146 Brake Shoe hold down (combination) kit did not have the self adjuster lever springs and the coil springs that are held on by a washer were 3/16" too long. I had to use to old ones in both cases. They were in good shape. I reported it to Rock Auto with my Core return request.
    Still waiting for Fed Ex to show up with the new hose so I can bleed them and put the wheels back on.

    EDIT- The hose came and it is a bit shorter than the one I removed. I bled it with a bottle ten pumps each wheel. Its still pretty spongy but it comes up if you pump it. I'll bleed it again after the rain passes this weekend.

    Front Rotors, pads and hoses are in. Calipers do soon. I'll get a good look at the suspension when I do them. Did I forget to get a bearing? I'm pretty sure I put a new bearing in when I did the same thing on the Dakota front brakes

    Since there is no core return on my drums and they are still in very good condition does anyone want them? Price of shipping and they are yours.
