What do you think about this video?

djhmo5: Okay, I have done a ton of brake jobs over the last 40 years. The methods and techniques in the video are perfectly fine. But just a couple of things: (1) you rarely have to replace any hardware parts, just clean them up a bit. Even the stuck adjuster wheel, put the adjuster in a vise, tap it with a hammer, and use a vise grip to grab the knob and break it loose. Failing that, heat the knob and it will come loose from the adjuster. (2) This is really important - never, never, never put on new brake shoes without rebuilding the wheel cylinders or getting new ones. Reason: residue builds up inside the wheel cylinder behind where the seals move. As the shoes wear, the seal move outward. When you put on new shoes, you push the seals farther back and the seals now ride over the residue, which grinds the seals and in about a month they will leak. Then you have to take everything apart all over again to fix the wheel cylinders. (3) be careful about the dust inside a rear drum brake. Most rear brakes are no longer made from asbestos, but if the shoes were replaced with parts from foreign countries, they could be made with asbestos.

Rick Saffery: 1AAuto posts another valuable video, thanks gents!

Kevin Olsen: Great Video!  Does the same basically apply for a 97 K2500.  I have the 7.4 with the heavy duty 13" drums.  Thank you.

Paul Tucker: Great video! Thanks for posting this - saved me a ton of time of trying to figure out the best order to put the springs back on.

Yod Vishnu Jonathan Renard Bey: Excellent

Marie Wheat: this guy does good videos informative thanks..............

dallas alford: thanks for your knowledge and instructions.

Bob The builder: Very helpful video. Saved me money. Thank you very much.

Denfala: how do you replace the 10" brakes

Armando Garcia: I just bought a 1998 Chevy suburban 5.7 and I have replaced parts even though they haven't given me any problems I want to replace all the sensors ( MAF, MAP, EGR, ECM, O2, KNOCK, TPS, and what ever else I may find or is it better to just replace these parts when needed I've already changed the oil replaced the battery the spark plugs and wires the distributor cap and rotor I've also replaced brakes and the brake booster I've also flushed the radiator replaced the hoses and the belt tires fuel pump and I feel that if I replace everything new it shouldn't break but I have family who tell me that I'm wasting money on the truck 

Scot Unotee: awesome videos. thanks. just one thing though. safety glasses. O and for others, I have found if I take a picture with my phone it helps when I put them back together.

Beth Smith: This is an awesome video. I am a female that like's doing my own repairs. I don't like getting my hands dirty, but like the cost of doing it myself. I found it easy per your video to remove the pads, but I'm finding it harder to pull the springs back into place with vise grips. I broke my left ring finger back in Jan of 2014. It's a still weak, I slammed it shut in a car door, ouch!!!  Would you have any other advice as to make it easier for me to get springs back on. You are awesome for taking the time to make this video. Thanks, Beth J. Smith

Joshua “J. Keys” Kistner: Great video!  I'm supervising my teenager while he does a break job on the old work truck and having him refer to your video saves a lot of father son lecturing/arguing.  This way he learns how to do it right the first time verses watching me mess it up and backtrack until I get it right.

Brian McCarthy: The repair kits they sell are color coded - but lack instructions.  Removing and keeping the old brake setup 'as intact as possible' helps (so does only doing one side at at time).  They sell a 'spring only' kit which does not include the adjuster pieces, since my setup was actually missing the small spring between the adjuster piece and the shoe, I got the complete kit.  Prior person also used the wrong springs - both sides were a nightmare.

If the video said it, I missed it, but 'always do both sides' when doing brakes.  

Juan's Reef Aquariums: awesome video, rear drums are always a pain but you made it look easy

Fred Miller: Great video for the do it yourselfer.  Kudos for using everyday tools to accomplish the job.  Thanks for taking the time to educate us!

Devon Zubia: apparently i dont have the little window in the back to adjust they self adjusted. but the video and the vise grips did help out alot 

Peggy Chapman: I was having trouble removing the rear break drums from a 1994 chevy pickup. After watching (with shock) the hitting it with a sledge hammer...was thinking that's crazy. But worked like a charm after spraying with WD40. Thanks a lot.

DuramaxLover98: Same here I hate drums they do a good job but a pain to replace. I'd rather go with disc in the back as well

Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
