    I recently did all my brakes on my Jimmy, I have the 14 bolt FF rear. When I did them i replaced the seals inside the drum because they were leaking. Just recently I noticed one of the drums is wet...[​IMG] I don't know how long its been doing this but it is definitely 90W not brake fluid. I haven't had time to take it apart but I'm thinking I may need to use one of those Speedy sleeves I've been hearing about. So how hard are they to install, and where can you find them?
    Anyone with first hand experience with this fix? Rear brakes are spendy and a pain in the a$$, I'd like to fix it for good!
