    I have a 2008 Reg Cab Tacoma with the Certified Used Toyota vehicle warranty. I purchased the truck a state over and I cannot drive to the original place of purchase. I have a slight thumping kind of noise from one of my back wheels I think. (maybe brake?) Does anyone have the exploded view of this Tacoma Rear Drum Brakes that I could look at, or know what the thump, thump, thump, When I APPLY the Brakes could be? Are there any tricks to taking the drums off or anything I need to know before I go poking around.

    not sure exactly what size, i have had these bolts for years.
    but you put in these two bolts, and alternating back and forth
    between the two, you tighten them.
    which basically slides the drum off the brake pads.
    make sure you dont have your emergency brake on at the time
