Advance Auto Drum Hardware BEWARE!
Posted 15 August 2003 - 05:03 AM
A couple of months ago, I replaced the shoes and the springs, etc. back there with a kit purchased from Advance Auto. A few weeks ago, I went off to go to town and all of a sudden one of my rear wheels locked up HARD. I managed to limp it home, almost going through the window every now and then. When I got a chance to replace everything AGAIN, I noticed that the pins that hold the shoes in place had fallen out completely. All the mess inside the drum was just flapping around in there. Chewed up the shoes, etc. ...
Got another set from - you guessed it, Advance Auto. Did the repair. This time it lasted about 2 weeks.
Last night when I was in there to do the swap, sure enough the pins were GONE again. The whole assembly was just floating inside the drum, waiting to snag up and mess itself again.
So - I don't know what it is, but something doesn't seem right with the rear drum hardware "kit" from Advance Auto.
Just something to think about...
