Default Re: wheel cyclinders

If your going to change the wheel cylinder...check your brake shoes. If they have alot of wear on them. Might as well just change the whole brake assembly (shoes, cylinders, hardware). Also check your wheel bearings and make sure their ok too!

You just have to pull the springs back that holds the brake shoes and unloosen the wheel cylinder from the wheel hub backplate. You might have to readjust your brake hardware shoe spacer thing (the one with teeth on it)
