brakes -Is this right?

My first time. Thoughts? Am I missing something?












Jeep title says '88, but everything points toward '92-'95...weird.

It looks good to me, but just to be sure, compare to the other side.

You a e missing some stuff. Hold on while I find the photo bucket stuff from last week when I did mine








You are missing the cable that hooks to the top and wraps around that metal quarter pie shaped piec and hooks to the piece on the bottom where the e-brake connects.

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

Also, next time, wire brush everything out of the brake area. You have a lot of dust and crud built up inside your drum area that is holding moisture or fluid in there. See how everything looks wet. You can wire brush it off or use a can or two or brake cleaner.

Yup those aren't going to work right. Go to your local parts store and get a spring kit and an adjuster repair kit. Both are cheap. I think it was 50 bucks for both kits, for both sides here. They will come with everything you need, plus a few pieces you don't. Don't drive that jeep! Yet.

One of the pieces missing is on the ground in your second picture. That is what your e-brake cable hooks to. It spins the self adjuster when you hit the brakes which in turn ratchets that little star on the rod between your back shoes and expands the shoes as they wear. The cable you are missing (the one not hooked up in my pic) connects to that and goes around that little metal pie pan piece and hooks to the top where your top springs are hooked up.

You have 10" brakes.

Also is it normal for the tops of the shoes not to be sure snug? I feel like I have to keep smacking them around to center

Yes, that is normal. The tops of the pads ride on the brake cylinder, which moves around.

your adjuster screws are probably out too far... turn them in and try getting your drums on.. you can adjust themfro the back after the drum is on.

I put the adjusters in, pulled the ebrake multiple times after each adjustment.
Drums went on.
Hopefully I'll get confirmation on the brakes and then take it for a drive
