09 Drum brakes

Put rear drum shoes. These are kind of difficult because I've never seen any spring patterns like this not the wishbone I was thinking there wasn't any on YouTube like this I had a heck of a time but I finally got it done after about 2 hours anyone else had to deal with these

LOL, those are fun aren't they. I did mine at around 100KKms, was fun and yes you can put away an hour per side if all goes well. What a PITA.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

That's odd for them to leave the single spring design. Both sides of that style normally take 30-40 mins after you've done plenty of them. Sometimes faster.

I've learned to always plan for a new spring kit. I don't even fool with old ones anymore. New spring kit everytime I do brakes.
