    Has anyone on here had any issues with the rear drum brakes?

    I have a 2010 DC trd sport with only 5k miles on it and my drivers side rear brakes busted right after i took it in for an oil change. The dealer told me one of the retainer clips snapped and caused the shoes to be loose inside the drum. I use my parking brake every time i park my truck, not sure if that should have anything to do with it.

    You're still under warrantee...have the dealer fix it.

    I haven't seen or heard of anyone having problems like that.

    and thats what the parking break is for...
    it should not cause any problems....
    most of the time it would be the wheel cilinder that goes bad
    might have been a mess up from the factory

    Every time I park I always use the parking brake. And no problems here. Most likely it was just not seated right from the factory.

    in theory, you have to use the parking brake when you park. So no, there is no problem with that. Also, with mine, I have used my parking brake while still rolling pretty often when getting the mail and no problem.
