What do you think about this video?

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

Frank Barrera: You should also post a link to your page for the parts used on a repair video... trying to find the drum and does on your page but I'm having a hard time doing so.

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.

1991tommygun: i hate drums,like just put discs on ffs

boraboy4ever: I appreciate mechanics that post these videos. Im someone that lost trust in the auto industry and auto service industry but if I lived in the area id use 1A.

1A Auto Parts: Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir and the master cylinder and also the brake booster for leaks. If they look fine, you could try to bleed the brakes to see if there's air trapped in the brake line somehow. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

fitzpatrickgf: Ok, Thank you!

josephhosea: Help me mike, got a 99 gmc youkon with striped transfer case plug, it's a 1/4 drain plug, what can i do?

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows you how to replace the wheel bearing. We'll keep this video in mind in the event that we need to make this repair in the future.

Travis Lopez: HIT IT HARDER!

arely0star: Question: would this be the same for a 2001 Chevy suburban?? Thanks

Garth Chase: Well done helped me

Jesus Robles: You shouldn't use vise grips on the return springs. It can put grooves on them, weakening them. That said, I used the same method a long time without any problems. But the tools are relatively cheap, no more tan $15 and less for the hold-down spring tool.

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this particular repair. We'll keep this request in mind in the event that we need to make this repair in the future.

radiomaster101: Hey man I love the vise grip idea with the springs best grip in the world great tip thanks!

forscha1: Is there a video for replacing the rear brakes for a 199 GMC Suburban 2500 with four wheel drive? Apparently the hub has to be removed first.

1A Auto Parts: we are currently working on other videos but we will keep this in mind later on.

1A Auto Parts: It may be fairly similar. What you can do is, take both drums off of the truck , but leave one side together. That way if you're unsure how things go into place you can use the other side as a reference. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day!

chevy1965ss: Hey Mike I got a 65 Chevy pu with drums all around still same set up??

JC4crs: 16:21 the "brake spoon" was supposed to be used at the very beginning the procedure. to close the shoes for easy removal of the drum. the reason this it was not necessary here is bc the adjuster was FROZEN as he found out.and was not Rotating (adjusting) final adjustment is not W "spoon" iT IS DONE SIMPLY BY DRIVING BACKWARDS & HIT THE BRAKES FOR HARD STOP CAUSES THE PAWL TO ACTUATE AND ROTATE THE ADJUSTER. SO, DRIVE BACK AND STOP. MULTIPLE TIMES. IT WILL STOP ADJUSTING WHEN SLACK GONE

1A Auto Parts: You could try some PB Blaster penetrating oil on it. Then you would need to find a way to turn it.

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for checkin us out. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

sinisterfox5: Weld a bolt or find a shop to weld a bolt or nut to the end of the plug then take it off by turning the bolt. Just buy another drain plug from the dealer or parts supplier. You probably got to it already but just some help for that... I do it when I see stripped oil drain plug bolts also. Careful with the sparks when welding though.

1A Auto Parts: What you can do too is when you tear down one side of the drum brakes in the rear, leave the other side together so that if you forget where things go you can walk over to the other side and use it as a referance point.

James Charles: can you make a video replacing booster brake for chevy c1500 pick up 2wheel drive 5.0

mejicano3333: Thank you for that tutorial, However I have a question for you, see if you can give me some advise on this problem I have with my 1998 gmc truck, today while driving I 've notice that the break pedal was getting harder every time I step on it and a funny noise like if there is some kind of air coming off and the noise keeps going while I have my foot pressing the brake pedal , Not sure what could it be, please any advise would help, Thanks again.

GMC656: Hello I am Salman from Saudi Arabia benefited a lot a lot of these practical lessons, Thank you very much from the heart

lostbinarybits: Excellent video and very straight forward. Thank you very much.

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video on this particular year,make and model. We do carry a rear brake rotor and drum kit for your Suburban on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: If it has drum brakes, it should be a similar process.

fitzpatrickgf: I'm almost confident enough to try and do my own drums with the procedures shown here. If you ever decide to edit this, can you please show more close ups of what you are unhooking at what parts of the shoe and just go a little slower during each procedure. I noticed the clipped editing to speed up and delete the delay in between the procedures, but the steps where you are standing in the way of the camera if you could again, show close ups with better lighting? it would be perfect. Thank you!

1A Auto Parts: @LYinKansas Ha!...Thank you for stopping by and giving praise...lol Have a great day!

rwo978: I saw the master cylinder at the top of the drum. apparently, I have a leaky one on my 97 yukon. Do you have a vid of that repair? Your vids are great, used them several times.

Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
