    Ok so I have a 2003 toyota Tacoma Sr5 4x4 and I believe I need new rear brake drums. I'm not sure yet though. I just wanted yalls opinion on
    That. When I'm braking, I noticed the rear of my truck shakes horribly! Even at low speeds. I'm hoping my drums are warped. What should I do? Buy new brake drums, or is it something else?

    My guess is the drums.
    Had rotors warp on the car and it pulsed when braking

    There's only one thing to do.....

    Jack up the rear-end, take off the rear tires, take off the drum and look inside.

    What's it look like in there?

    Can't always tell by looking. Rotors looked fine. Maybe it's different with drums.:notsure:

    It's the only place to start........by looking. Open up both wheels and compare.
    Notice anything broken?
    Springs not attached?
    How's the shoe wear? Uneven? or ...??
    How's the adjuster functioning?
    How clean/dirty is it in there?

    He could take a picture and post it here.

    If everything looks fine in there.....then its time to move on to something else.

    I didn't say it wasn't a good place to start just that you can't always tell by looking at it if it's warpped.
