Weak springs

By 

from Virginia

Comments about Wearever Drum Brake Hardware Combi-Kit:

As already mentioned in another's review, the retaining springs that hold the two shoes to the back plate are the weakest, and I had to keep my stock parts. In general, all the springs in this kit are weaker than the 114K mile stock springs. I ended up keeping all stock springs. The only thing I used from the product was the horse shoe shaped C-clamps to attach the levers to the new shoes.

      Retaining clip springs are too weak

      By 

      from Pittsburgh

      Comments about Wearever Drum Brake Hardware Combi-Kit:

      The retaining clip springs were noticeably weaker than stock. Allowed brakes to move during light braking (brake force holds them in place during strong braking). The movement during like braking sounds like a ticking sound just before you come to a complete stop.

      I put hte original springs back in and no more clicking.

      the only parts I really needed were the horseshoe clips - I wish those came separately.

          Looks good, a few extra pieces thrown in for good measure (i think). after seeing the old springs that had over 200k miles on them, i'm glad i paid a few bucks for new springs.

              The kit worked fine, but one of the springs had been removed from the kit; there was a small hole in the bag. Not a real problem, because I had a spare, but it could have been a big deal for someone else.

                Does the hardware kit include the parts for both drum brakes? (meaning that I only have to buy one kit to do both)
