Found this when I pulled a tire off a truck....

Truck wasn't stopping very well. :tonka: Surprisingly it wasn't making any noise....I bet it made noise at one time.

History...friend bought a truck, wanted me to look at the brakes so I did. The only thing I can think of is that the springs broke at one point and the shoes wore into the drum and did this. But when we pulled it apart, all the springs, hardware, shoes and wheel cylinder were new. The drum however, was not. :stan3:

my 97grand am did that to me once......bought it and he said the brakes needed done on the front.....did them on the front and no noises anymore.....then i pulled my ebrake during that next winter and found i didn't have an e-brake.....so i pulled the rear tire of to see if the cable was broke and the drum just kinda fell apart off the hub.......

my truck was making a weird noise from the tires and i figured it was just mud. The noise got more intense over a couple of days so i took my back tires off and knocked the rear (drum parking) break and some shavings of metal came out. I took them apart and about 50 pieces of what was once my parking break fell into my lap. Good thing my truck is an auto

those are just the new performance two piece drums, so you can back the adjuster off easier
