    is there a tutorial on changing the brake pads on the rear brakes? I found a video from Youtube: DavesFarm- drum brake pad replacement...... but its for a Honda Accord.

    The reason I ask is because my dad put new brake pads on my truck for me about 4 months ago and they get squeaky after i wash my truck or its cold out, and i want to see whats going on. ( Braking under normal conditions: highway stops and around town stops)

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    Are they in adjustment?
    Did the springs/hardware get replaced with the shoes?
    I use a little copper paste on the points where the shoes slide on the backing plate to alleviate noise.
    I also scuff the drums with sandpaper if they don't need to be turned. New shoes can potentially grab on the lip of worn drum causing a harmonic.

    should I remove the rear drum and clean the brake dust or will adjusting them be fine?

    Did you dad do the front or the rear. For future reference, pads (discs) are on the front and shoes (drums) are on the rear. Shoes typically last a very long time on the rear of Tacoma's.

    You can remove the rear drums and clean them out with compressed air and brake cleaner if you wish - won't hurt anything.
