    Last nite i did my drum brakes at my stepdads house and drove the truck home. Everything was fine. Today while pulling out of my street I hear clunk, clunk from the left rear wheel. I pull over into the elementary school, jack it up and pull off the drum. The star adjuster bent on both sides where it attatches to the shoes and fell off inside the drum. So needless to say something went wrong. I put the drum back on without the adjuster and drove it home. It worked without it fine, but I bought a new one and now its back to normal.
