I use this vehicle for normal work duty. It is a Discovery conversion van, which makes it very heavy. All parts worked and matched up perfectly as required. The springs and parts appeared to be exact replacements for my 1994 GMC Safari van rear drum brakes. The quality seemed to be comparable to the originals which lasted 20 years. I always replace the hardware when performing brake service, so as not to have to worry or have problems later. Small price to pay for peace of mind. Good product and easy to install.

CAUTION: This kit does not include enough springs to install both rear brakes! It also does not have the wavy washers for the parking brake lever.

The kit is missing one set of the hold-down springs. It is also missing the 'wave' washers that live between the parking brake lever and the rear shoe.

If you replace the "E-clip" that holds the parking brake lever onto the rear shoe, don't lose the wave washer that lives in between the two.

I'd think that the kit should also include a small tube of grease, for those of us who are "weekend mechanics"...

My store was kind enough to give me the needed springs -- yours should be helpful as well.

Someone at Advance's head office should have noticed this problem by now, as I'm not the only person who has commented on this problem.

        Comments about Wearever Drum Brake Hardware Combi-Kit:

        Bought this kit for a 1997 Blazer. Most of the springs were included, but it was missing two little round ones. We managed to re-use them from the old brakes, but they weren't in the best of shape and I was extremely disappointed.

        The kit is cheap though, so this time I'm going to order two of them for my 1996 Blazer. I sure wish I would have known in advance that there would be pieces missing though, as I would have just ordered a second kit right from the start for the last truck.

        I wouldn't really recommend this kit, except that there aren't a lot of alternatives. Buy two, and return the second one if it's unnecessary.

                I wish I would have read the other reviews more thoroughly like I usually do. I was thinking "How badly could they screw up a bag of hardware?".

                I found out how badly.

                Its been awhile since I did a brake job and wanted to make sure I had good clean parts when I do the brake job. The parts kit was missing many springs, so i put the wrong springs in the wrong areas since I was short springs. After purchasing a new bag of springs, I was able rectify the problems and complete the job.... Wearever owes me a steak dinner for the inconvenience!

                          This kit didn't include the spring's between shoe & self adjuster arm,#@% which I needed one, So I used old smaller shoe retainer spring in it's place, Seem's to be same tension just wider,should work well. My starwheel spring's however are red & white but identical, Not for the driver side luckily my original was still o.k. Personally I have never known these self adjuster's to ever work...Generally I manually adjust them every year or so....

                              The kit is *supposed* to have enough parts for both wheels.

                              However, it is missing a set of the brake shoe hold-down springs, as well as the little wave-washers for the parking brake levers.

                              Your local store should be able to help you out with the missing parts.
