I do want rear discs but I dont want to part with the cash right now. Anyone out there have everything I need that wants to trade for that cage I have?

Take a half hour to pull the drums and access the situation. You've gone from a sub $100 fix to a $2k+ fix!

Here is a radical idea. Sell the 110 and for the same money you could have an 03 RR for the family and a 90 trail rig for the weekends.

It is like $500 to do it on the cheap with used but functional calipers and new brackets and machining of the brackets.

Hubs: $100
Brackets: $200
Used calipers: $50
Machine work: $20
New pads and rotors: $130

edit: Lucky8 sells ashcroft axles.

You either need the axles and dont have to machine the brackets and you can use ABS axle stuff or you need early RRC non-abs hubs and machine a smidge off the brackets and use your stock axles. The ABS style hubs (you need flanges too) have the advantage of working with alloy wheels.

if you want to pay for the crap that goes wrong daily sure. Just talked to george. Cylinders and shoes were cheap. He said I should replace both sides as it makes sense if one went the other is sure to follow. I ordered shoes and cylinders. Looks like my truck is keeping the drums for a bit.

Make sure to turn/check the drums before you fit new shoes.

Dude, you were going to take it apart and look at it. Remember?

I know I just couldn't wait. Took a chance it was the brakes. Figure if it isn't the brakes but the hub seal the shoes should still be replaced as they are covered in oil.

Never worked on a drum brake but replacing the hub seals on my rears was really easy. You might as well order the new seals and go buy some good bearings at NAPA and a cheap universal bearing packer and do them while you have everything apart. It will add maybe an hour to the total job, if you're slow.

I did it for a front wheel and it was easy. I really hope it isn't that.

So I will most likely do the brakes myself. Is this in the 110 overhaul manual? If the drums need to be cleaned, brake cleaner and a rag?
