CARQUEST Wearever Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder

Part No. WCA37787 Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

Direct replacement Wheel Cylinders are designed to fit specific vehicle applications and to ensure a proper fit every time. Normal wear may cause piston seals to leak. Corrosion and pitting can also occur inside Wheel Cylinders as moisture builds up in the brake fluid. A leaky Wheel Cylinder can be dangerous to the driver, causing gradual softening of the brake pedal and creating brake pull to one side.

Product Features:
  • All Wheel Cylinders are made with high quality EPDM rubber cups and boots for long lasting performance
  • Wheel Cylinder bores are surface tested to ensure an optimum sealing surface for the pressure cups
  • Due to repair time and cost, it is more desirable to replace instead of repair Wheel Cylinders
  • Recommended replacement is suggested when servicing drum brake

Was skeptical because of the low price, but the car stops much better and with greater balance. Clean everything good first with brake cleaner and make sure all of your retainer springs are in good order. Also scuff up your drums inside before assembling to take the glaze off and have someone help you do a good bleed. If you do it right like that and set your adjusters its almost as good as having discs on the rear.

I bought this in May 2011, and it is now June 2012. I took my drum off due to a weak pedal, and noticed that this wheel cylinder was leaking already. ONE YEAR LIFESPAN IS PATHETIC! What happened to the good old days of quality parts stores?

          Comments about Tru-Torque Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder:

          As another reviewer said: "It is not an exact fit for the car. The oem fits perfectly on the back plate this one needs extra work to prevent water to come in the drum because it is smaller." No gasket is included and the OEM gasket doesn't fit. I used a bead of RTV silicone sealant to seal it, then had to wait a day to avoid risking getting brake fluid on the silicone before it cured. This cylinder also looks lighter/cheaper than the OEM, but the cylinder does work and braking action feels good. This is for a '93 Escort.

          Comments about Tru-Torque Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder:

          Was easy to install. But buy a new brake brake line to connect to it. They almost always brake when removing from the wheel cylinder. If you don't need it, you can always return it. Also, did not come with a gasket. Original equipment did have a gasket. I put it in without one. Probably not a big deal has there's plenty of other holes where stuff can get in.
