Hi, are there any Write-Up's/DIY's on changing the rear brake shoes on a 1994 Toyota T100 2WD Auto 3.0 V6 Single cab. I tried searching but I couldnt find anything for the past two days. I have found one where it was on a GEN3 Camry but I highly doubt the rear drums are exactly the same. I have worked on cars before...changing clutches/replacing motors/head gasket jobs but I have never done brake drums. Any help is greatly appreciated! On a deadline here for my dads truck :sosad:

Rear drum brakes are almost all identical as far as removal/installation. Not too much difference on how they go together except fer the bolt sizes. ;)

Ooo I see thank you! I just read around on the forums that some of the drums just comes off with some pressure and some has the spindle/axle bolt that holds it on so I'm sorta worried. I also read something about the wheel bearings. I'm just trying to get as much information as possible so when I take on the task I'm not confused 100% of the time. :lol:

Might try the Autozone website vehicle repair guide section.
Thank you. I just looked it up on the website and found the instructions. Any other tips/advice before I take on the task? I'm still a little bit dazed on the replacement, I'm more of a step by step picture person...any other help would be greatly appreciated.

Since you are changing the shoes...you need to make sure you put the right ones in the right place. I think it's broken down by primary and secondary shoes? I think primary shoes face towards the front of the vehicle...but I can't remember. :(

Git the drums cut at the machine shop. Yer gonna have to call around to find out who and how much. Also, pick up a couple of cans of brake cleaner. Don't try to blow the dust buildup or wash it with water. Make sure you wear eye protection and don't breathe in the dust. Take yer time. Do you have a factory service manual? Those really come in handy... :D
