WTB: Big Rear Drum Brake Parts 10"X2.5"


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I am in need of the factory big brake rear parts. I am in the middle of a 7 year MJ rebuild. I took the D44 rear axle apart for refinishing, and while everything was off, I discarded the whole pile of parts thinking that I would be replacing it with new hardware... Sounds decent right?

 

Nope. When I cast away all the used stuff, I never removed the parking brake bars, the parking brake linkages attached to the rear shoes, and the wheel cylinder arms, all of which are not available anymore. The only thing I was able to source was a left side parking brake bar.


I need all of that stuff for the 10"x2" big drum brakes found on the D44 and select D35's. I have the entire truck re-brake lined, and ready to roll around, but I am missing the rear hardware that you can't get in the generic kits. Pics for attention.

I may have found what I needed... I'll let you guys know. I was bored in the late hours of last night and running part numbers. The only one I haven't been able to find is the right parking brake strut bar.

 

I'll update once the parts come in.

I can't say for sure about some things, but the Chrysler or AMC PN's didn't cross to anything. Rare/Vintage parts by Mopar only had the one parking brake strut. Because not a lot crossed to the OEM numbers, and I didn't have the actual parts, it was hard to source suitable replacements.

 

Late last night I was doing my thing again after posting here, and discovered that Google searches of the part numbers popped up with some Omix-Ada parts. When I looked closer at some of the Amazon listings, the part numbers from Omix were right, but the reasons they hadn't been crossing was that the would leave off the "J" prefix letter, or when a PN was "0000XXXX" they would list the crossing number as "XXXX" so it wouldn't show up on the searches. Last night I ordered 4 wheel cylinder pins, 2 parking brake levers, and 2 parking brake strut bar springs. I still cannot find the other side parking brake bar. If it all comes in and appears to work, shipping a little bar should be easy if someone has one.

 

I'll update as I can.

Is the bar not the same for both sides?

 

Nope, they have different part numbers.

 

Rob, the D35 w/o anti-lock brakes use the same strut bars as the 44 according to the parts manual.
