JK rear parking brake pads

Sort of new to forum.. hoping to get some helpful advice. Can the rear parking brake pads on the JK be replaced without removal of the rear axle? I'm in the process of doing this AND while I have everything apart and ready to go - before I even start seems like there just isn't a way to proceed in assembly without taking out the axles? Any experience here?

Thanks much

The parking brake actually uses shoes, not pads but same type of thing. The parking brake is a drum brake that uses the inside of the rear rotors as the drum. Once you pop off the rotor you should be able to replace them fairly easy

It depends. If you are replacing just the shoes, you can do it without removing the axles. But......the shoes alone cost as much as if you bought the whole assembly which includes new shoes, springs, etc. Have to remove axle to swap this out.

thanks... looked into the assembly...probably should have gone that way... but opted to replace parts... seems that axle still has to come out... no way (that I can figure) to install back spring of actuator... so axle out...

wow.. what an assembly... good opportunity here for re-engineering... it's only a parking brake... consider the total cost/time to replace both rears...it's only a parking brake..go figure...

If I remember correctly there are 2 springs on top and a shorter one on the bottom.
Perhaps curved needle nose pliers?
