    Is there a good/decent writeup on rebuilding the rear drum brakes on a '91 Jimmy Fullsize? I did some searching but came up with mostly posts regarding specific problems people have with the drums. The brakes on my truck are beginning to squeak pretty badly when trying to hold the truck while creeping in stop-traffic (yes I have an auto).

    I did a google search and found this from Hot Rod magazine. It says their rebuild is for GM drums too - should be pretty helpful

    Do some more searching and I'm sure you'll find a very detailed writeup.
    Good luck :o

    Thanks, after reading through that tutorial it does not seem like too much trouble to rebuild drum brakes. I may do it at the same time I flush the brake fluid.
