Rear brakes.


Recommended Posts

I guess while I'm on the subject I'll ask. My rear drums lock up with the slightest of pressure when coming to a stop. Do they just need to be adjusted, or are the drums shot? about a motnh ago the drums were off and there was still a lot of pad left.

 

Thanks. :cheers:

For a D35, you need the 1-3/4" X 9 Shoes.

 

The 2-1/2" are for a D44......if your lucky enough to have one :roll:

 

Also.....here's a little DIY on the rear brakes......

Note the location of the shoes, one is longer surfaced (rear) that the other.

 

My 87 MJ with D35 has 1 3/4x10 brakes.

My 94 XJ with 8.25" has 1 3/4x10 brakes

 

My buddy's 91 XJ with D35 has 2 1/2x9 brakes.

Correct, everything I have seen and herd says XJ's got the 9" rear brakes, the MJ got the 10's. BUT, just remember, this IS A JEEP and anything is possible.

 

The D44 got the 10" wider 2"+ wide brake pads/drums.

All XJs had 10" rear brakes up through 1989, and possibly through 1990. The 10 x 1-3/4 were GENERALLY used with the D35, and the 10 x 2-1/2 were GENERALLY used with the D44. However, there have been isolated reports of D35s with 10 x 2-1/2" brakes and D44s with 10 x 1-3/4" brakes.

 

The 9 x 2-1/2" rear brakes were never used by AMC. That was one of Chrysler's "improvements."
