    Default How To Replace 1999 Gmc Suburban Rear Brake Shoes

    Hello everyone, I'm attempting to replace the rear shoes on my Suburban. I can replace pads in less than 15 minutes but these shoes are a pain in the butt. I got the drivers side off and the new ones on but I'm having trouble getting the drum back over the new shoes. The shoes are expanded out further than the inside diameter of the drum. Is there a trick here that I'm missing to get them to close so I can get it on? Any help would be appreciated.
    thanks Trin
