    I need to replace all the springs and pins in the rear drums. What would that kit be called? Wheel kit?

    Anybody bought em lately? How much $$$ are we talking?

    did those when swapping in my 14 bolt, but don't recall the 'official' name. It's a hardware kit for the rear brakes is all I ask for. You want to do one side at a time so you have a reference & make sure the kit has everything you need.
    Often by the time you need the hardware kit, you have some ugly wear patterns in the backing plate as well (@ the movement/lube points). Think they were $8-12 a side (or somewhere near that) Not too bad for all new pieces.

    UPDATE!

    Got the kit at Discount Auto. It does both sides and it was only $8.83

    You'd think it would be more /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
