Just a shot in the dark, check your u-joints. Also, I just had a mystery grinding noise and found the brake adjuster and spring laying in the bottom of the drum when I removed it. BTW, it sounded like it was coming from the front when actually it was the rear.

Have you had the drums turned? If so the shoes may be contacting the unturned shoulder which shows up only during a turn. A quick fix is to bevel the outer edge of the shoe with a grinder which can be done with shoes mounted in place.

I haven’t had them turned. I never got around to taking the rears off today because I got so focused on the front.

I can reproduce the noise with the rear on jackstands and the truck running in gear. So I’m back to thinking brakes again. Would a ridge in the drum produce that same effect.

Quite possibly.

Pass side front shoe. Note the “glazing” on the outer edges.

Pass side rear shoe. Spotty glazing and one little chunk missing.

Not ideal, but I’m struggling to see anything here that would explain the magnitude of the noise I hear.

Have you driven the truck hard and made some quick stops? They may just need seated into the drums. The rear does show a dragging line around the edge of the shoe, thats enough to make noise. Make some 40 mph quick stops and really heat them up, that might be enough to fix it. A good sanding with course paper wouldn't hurt either, just don't breath the dust.

A couple observations that may or may not mean anything important.


If I seat the drum with the lug nuts but wheel off, the drum face isn’t perfectly evenly flush to the center of the hub. However, the gap seems pretty even looking at the backing plate.

I readjusted this one..to a very firm drag and then off 10 clicks. The drag is not even the whole way around. I’d assume that means one shoe is engaging and the other isn’t. Would some firm stops get that corrected too?

Would it be worth just having that brake drum turned?
