    Hello everyone,

    I did replaced my taco 05's rear brake last Saturday. After 2 days of driving, I'm hearing a clicking sound at the rear left (driver side) brake everytime I start a 1st gear. This will happen when I came from a full stop.

    I open the brake drum and suspected that its the spring holding the front brake shoe. Everytime the shoe moves, the spring creates a click sound. I hope I'm right. If I'm right, do you any suggestions to eliminate the clicking sound? Anybody has experience this issue? Please see attach photo also.

    I really appreciate for any inputs and help.

    for some reason i feel like something is missing

    where does the emergency cable attach?

    that one arm sticking out at the bottom looks like its missing a sping or something

    i may be totally wrong

    pull off the other side and see if both sides are identical

    I already check it twice and they are the same. You can see the other end of the spring on the left side.

    I'm suspecting that I might need new or resurface the drum. Thanks for the reply.

    Was this clicking sound happening before you changed your brakes? Then you changed them and it's STILL clicking? Or did the clicking only start after you got the new ones on?

    I sort of recall reading about this on tundrasolutions.com
    When I get around to it, I'll edit this post with the info. But I remember it not being a problem with the brakes at all, and that the sound was normal. I'll doublecheck.

    Here's my educated guess as to what's happening. You replaced the rear shoes which means you have at least 100K miles on your truck. You said you replaced the shoes without turning the drums...correct so far? I can tell you from pulling my drums off 20K miles ago that they're worn very far down where the shoes rest. Now that you put on new shoes, they probably aren't lining up with the deep channel that the previous shoes created (turning them would have eliminated this channel). So when you step on the brakes, the shoe is being forced into the channel and shifting a little which is applying lateral force on the spring causing it to squeak.

    But that's just a guess.:D So, gets the drums turned (and you might even find that they have to be replaced if they're not thick enough anymore...that's my suspicion when it comes time to replace my shoes.).

    You have a point man. This is the first time I replaced the brake shoe after 195,000miles. BTW, the new brake shoe is Beck/Arnley (after market) while the old one is still from Toyota. I don't know if it will matter.

    This morning I tried to have it look by the dealer. Unfortunately, the clicking clear when they test it. Maybe because I drove it for about 15miles (home to dealer) with heavy rains. I think I heard it click only once the whole day. I will try to observe it and if it comes back I will rotate the drums.

    I'll keep this posted.

    From your picture, it looks as though the lower brake shoe strut(looks like half moon wrench) was not replaced correctly. If you look at the bottom of the assembly, the round end of the lower brake shoe strut should go in to the round area of the upper strut(part attached to shoe and parking brake lever). It just needs to go up a notch.
