    I replaced the Brake Shoes, Wheel Cylinder, and had the Brake Drums re-surfaced on my 87 Chev Blazer.
    My problem, is the right rear bakes makes a scraping noise when I apply the brakes.
    The adjustment on the brakes shoes are within specs.
    I'm puzzled. What could cause that scraping noise??
    I Would appreciate any advice, thanks!

    did you lube the backing plates with some dielectric grease when you put it all together? theres maybe 3 or 4 tabs for each brake shoe that ride on a little spot on the backing plate...its a possibility..

    Why would you use dielectric grease for a mechanical "connection"? Did you mean Lithium grease? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    uhh negative, dielectric grease is what it is..its thick enough to work perfectly, its what we use at work.. use it on all my brakes.. also use it to lube front caliper slides..dielectric grease/brake parts grease is what its called and its the same as regular dielectric grease...works great
