i done fuck something up this time. I decide to change my rear drum shoes today bc it was time. during assembling the driver side the cyclinder on top of the drum fell apart.. so i put it back together. so after i put everything back on and bleed the brakes with no problems.. i decide to test the brakes.

I drive Forward and hit the brakes hard.. bang. i heard the loudest bang ever.. metal to metal hitting i feel in my back. i drive forward again and hit the brakes hard.. nothing.. so i decide to drive in reverses and do the same.. bang.. again.. i do it again drive backwards and hit the brakes hard.. nothing.. its only does it once in each direction..

i did lube up the shackles do to i'm gonna change them soon and want the bolts to be easy to come out.. i can't tell where the sound is come from.. but it definitey is coming for the rear of the truck.. sound like the suspension is poping.. idk what it is..

help i done fuck something up

If it wasn't there before you did the brakes and it's there after then it's most likely something with the brakes. I'd pull the drums off and thoroughly check everything to check and see what's moving.

....this is why some things it's just best to pay to have serviced.

I read the write-up on doing the drums... and honestly i'd rather spend the $109.95 my dealer charged me last time to change the drums every 50/60k miles and NOT worry about it being messed up :lol:

well dealer wanted to charge me $350 and i was like fuck no.... drums aren't that bad.. they are a headache but not bad.. as for this noise.. its not coming from the brakes.. it only does it at a fast stop causing something to slide forward and hit.. trying to figure out whats moving i have no idea

well checked the brakes again.. and also checked my tow hitch, spare tire and rear bumper. not it.. it sounds like its coming from the leaf springs.. had guys at my job look around while i drove back and forth simulating making the noise happen.. and they said i seems to be coming from leaf springs

if its coming from the leafs then its possible that it could be your axle moving foward:shrug:

before you burn it......lower it. i bet you will like it then:D

Is the horseshoe spring on correctly?

Can you take pictures and post them? That might help us give you an idea.
