Default what is a wheel cyclinder...

I hear people mention wheel cylinder when talking about brakes.

In my case, a 2010 2.3 stick, what is a wheel cyclinder, and does my ranger have one?? Is it part of the caliper?

Default Re: what is a wheel cyclinder...

To be more specific, the wheel cylinder is the piece of drum brakes that pushes the brake shoes against the drum when you hit the brake pedal.



If your truck has rear disc brakes, you don't have wheel cylinders.
