RE: Replacing drum brakes ???

Agree with others replace the entire assembly. I priced it both ways, its a no brainer, get the backing plate with all new parts. Thanks to all who wrote.

RE: Replacing drum brakes ???

replace the whole things with self adjusting. Good idea, as I am 72 and it used to be a lot easier to adjust the brakes. Thanks

Replacing drum brakes ???

Need to replace brakes on my 5er, it has Lippert axles, drums are 12". Can I just replace the brake shoes or do I replace the entire backing plate, brakes, magnet all of it. Where do I go for parts? Thanks

RE: ST Tires ???

Just curious why you would go back to ST tires. Have you had issues with the LT tires you've been using? Personally the only ST tire I would ever buy would be a Sailun. I have Michelin Ribs, no problems, but the ST tires have a thicker sidewall so that is why I am considering them. Axles are 6K.I can only rely on what I've seen when comparing ST tires to tires I replaced them with, which at that time were LT tires. The ST tires I took off, Carlisle ST 235/85-16, had such flimsy sidewalls that, with it dismounted from the wheel, you could basically collapse the tire by simply sitting on it. One of the boasts that you seem to hear is that ST tires have stronger sidewalls, but that hasn't been borne out by what I've seen. And if you've had good luck with LT tires, why change? You know the old saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". I would stick with a known quantity. JMO of course. The thought did cross my mind, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" The Michelin Ribs I have are 9 years old and doing well.

Lippert Equa-Flex equalizer ???

I can buy Lippert Equa-Flex equalizer to replace my existing equalizers but not a fan of Lippert, does any other manufacturer make the same product. Thanks
