Your 1993 Dana 35 will have C-clips.

The Dana 35C designation is not a reference to the existence of C-clips or not. It means "custom" which is a Dana company reference to the way the axle was prepared at Dana prior to delivery to the customer (Jeep, in this case) back when the axle was produced new.

OK, that's good to know. One more thing though. If it is just the wheel cylinder, would I be able to just swap the one side out and be OK for now, or should I do them both? I know if one is on it's way out the other is probably close behind, but is there anything other than that which may cause problems by just swapping the one?
I could get away with swapping the wheel cylinder in the car park and bleeding the system, but not pulling the shafts to swap in disks!

87 to 89 have non-c clips. If your axles are stock, you have a c clip version.

OK, thanks guys. I'll grab another wheel cylinder as I found one in the back from the PO which I guess he forgot to tell me needs replacing!

Well I finally bit the bullet and sent it in to a mechanic for the wheel cylinder replacement! I hate having to do that, but I have no private parking to replace the cylinders and bleed the brakes so it had to go in!

fingers crossed it will fix the issues and get it through inspection this time! Third time lucky!

So, the saga of the dodgy brakes is finally over, I think! I sent it to the mechanic who told me it wasn't the wheel cylinder, that was fine. It was the drums and shoes which were completely ragged! One shoe was cracked, so was probably causing the intermittent braking differences and the drums were also not completely round (is this normal though?) as they would catch on some points of rotation but not on others, as if they were going oval!

Anyway, new drums and shoes and now my star wheels click on every try so they should be good to go. Time for inspection now to see if it actually works!

Thanks for the responses guys, the help is really appreciated.

FYI The star wheel is a self adjuster that is suppose to adjust your brakes every time you back up and hit the brakes. There is a point that you adjust them to. Not until they will not turn...

I have always adjusted my rear brakes with the tire in the air, while turning the tire I will adjust the brakes until the brakes start to rub. Not until they are tight.

Hope this helps you.

I know mate, my concern was first to check they were adjusted enough for the locking arm to catch on the wheel and second to check that they actually click on more than one push. Prior to the replacement they wouldn't click at all, no matter how tight I got them. I am going to check them properly once I get time to make sure they are adjusted properly before I go for inspection.
