So yesterday I replaced my front brakes, disks and pads..... But after I noticed a nasty grinding noise. Well i rechecked my brakes and everything was fine. I took my truck in for a tire rotation (free with tire purchase) and they pointed out a problem in the rear ( tire shop only, they wouldnt mess anything up as they ONLY do tires). Well left rear wheel even when torqued could "move" in and out about .5" tops. I took the truck home and took off my drums, well it turns out that rear drums are toast (broken springs, cracked shoes). I replaced all the parts (still need to finish up the other side tomorrow morning) but now I am wondering, could a really bad drum brake assembly cause the problems I was having. I know the grinding noise was from the shoes, but what about the wheel moving in and out.... I did also notice that when I took the wheel off on the left rear the drum wasnt pressed on completely against the hub. I I dunno, I hope new brakes fix it.
I guess on the bright side, I will have all new brakes haha, but damn prices are getting kind of expensive. I Spent ~250 for all 4 corners in parts.
