Drum Brake Service

Hey all,
Want to do my Rear Drum Brakes this weekend. They squeak every time I push or release the Pedal. It drives me nuts.
It's an 04 with 40,000 miles and in order to get rid of the Squeak I figured I'd clean them up and throw some new Pads and small parts kit on there while I'm at it.
Anybody have any tips or parts they like to use or stuff to stay away from ? Thought I'd gather stuff up today and do them in the morning before it's too damn hot out. I'm in AZ. So it's a couple hrs to work in the a.m. Then, forget it !
Thanks.

Does the noise persist the entire time the brakes are applied? Or does it occur only during initial application and again upon release?

I believe that you just need some anti size on the contact points between brake pads and backplade

Just squeaks when I release the pedal. I figured it just needs bit O lube on contact points but I thought, what the hell, might as well clean em up and throw new shoes on.
I like to take care of stuff all at once when I can just be done with it.
Front brakes and rotors are brand new. Just did them. A couple months ago.

So, any good Brakes suggestions or just go with whatever is top of the line at Napa or Autozone ?
I realize there is no Performance gain from rear brakes but just wondered if someone has a preference ?
Where are ya, Jerry ? Lol

I just did the standard "middle of the ground" Advanced Auto shoes and a new set of spring hardware. Always get the spring hardware when you're redoing shoes, plus a can of brake cleaner, grease, and I definitely recommend investing a drum brake spring cap tool and a spring puller tool - both pictures for reference.




If you've never done drum brakes before, take your time and take plenty of pictures. It's nice to have when you're trying to reassemble the springs and forget where everything goes. I have rear disc brakes now (8.8 axle), but I actually enjoy working on drum brakes more than disc brakes.

Yep, photos, spring tools, Black Magic in the front and plain, old Raybestos in the rear. Replace the adjusters and the parking brake shoes, too, if they need it.

First time doing the Jeep rear brakes.
Is there just one Hardware kit I need ?
My last vehicle required a set for brakes and a set for the parking brake. Not sure why they did them separate.
