Ford F150, Rear Brake Repair
like to know how to remove the rear brake drums from my Ford F150 pick
up. Do I need a special tool, if so what? I am trying to put new rear
brakes on myself to save some money.
to be disrespectful, but if you dont have a handle on removing a
brake drum what are you doing trying to perform brake work? Removing the
brake drum is the easiest part of the job. Sometimes rust is a problem,
but a little wire brushing, penetrating oil and a few taps of love from
a hammer allow the brake drum to be removed. A lot depends on the operation
of your brakes. It is not a job for the beginner and the correlation of
saving a life to saving money is a concern.
