'05 4cyl SE parking brake should only use two shoes on driver's side rear, correct?
USA made, to further complicate things, since Toyota decided to use different parts for USA and Japanese made cars. It's been a while since I worked on the brakes, but I'm going to replace everything again, and am searching rockauto and seeing pics showing four shoes for the parking brake replacement parts (i.e. Wagner Z859, Raybestos 859PG). IIRC, the parking brake activates two shoes on the rear, driver's side, wheel only.
Are the pics showing four shoes wrong, or do I use only 2 of the 4 shoes sent?
Since, what prompted me to replace everything now is something metallic dragging on that same rear, driver's side, rotor, I'm planning on having a new parking brake hardware kit on hand too. It sounds like a pad sensor rubbing on the rotor, but I like to be prepared, so I don't have to run anywhere in the middle of a job (probably buy small parts that may not be needed locally to facilitate returns).
BTW, found speedkar99's excellent 2014 tutorial on YT! Different car, but from what I remember, the procedure's the same.
Thanks in advance, and a good Sunday to all!
