Rear drum brake help??? (2001 Ford Ranger 2wd)

apon furthur inspection of the clicking/ clunking noise coming from my ranger i noticed:

1. when i rotate the rear wheel forward and then backward, the rear of the transmission makes a clunking noise. it's my understanding that rangers typically have a bit of driveline slop though.

2. there is a clunking/ dull clicking noise that occurs when going over bumps and when starting to brake. if you tap the brake when carrying some speed, it makes the noise. sounds like its coming from the rear.

i'm kind of hoping that it is something to do with the rear drum. is it possible that the ratcheting mechanism that controls the "diameter" of the shoes isn't adjusted to the diameter of the drum? then that could be making the shoe assembly slop around in there? or is that ratcheting device self adjusting? we had the rear drum apart to change the shoes btw.

try using your emergency brake, going forwards or backwards and on some of them, it will adjust the shoes to the drums.


But mopars nuts about taking the drums off, it's pouring outside.

Click upon stopping could possibly be shoe hanging up on faceplate. I'd open it and check to see everything is ok.

As for clunking, had you checked the u-joint on the driveshaft for play?

it sounded like it was. maybe the noise was echoing thru the bed? and i guess all that slop everywhere is normal.

b4 i went any furthur, i had a friend jump in the bed while i went for a cruz and he said it was coming from the front.
