    Rear parking brake shoes.

    I finished replacing the rear parking brake shoes last night. What a PITA, took 2 hours to get the retainer springs and discs to line up. Is there an easier method I am missing?

    Yes, I think it's called "paying someone else to do it."

    I can't recall if I replaced my parking brake shoes when I replaced the pads, I don't think I did.

    those retainers were the worst! twas far easier on my sierra, but i think that's just part of the joy that is a drum brake setup.
    it also helps if you have the actual spring & retainer tool rather than fidgeting around with screw drivers & pliers.
