All because I knocked the parking brake shoes loose when I hammered the old rotor off the hub. and because it’s essentially a drum brake system (I hate and had never worked on drums brakes until now), I had to force 40 year old springs that didn’t wanna spring, to spring.

But it’s okay now! I can do the passenger side in less than an hour, I now have a basic idea of how drum brakes work and now I can do all the drums (LIES, I WILL AVOID DRUMS TO THE END OF TIME IF I CAN HELP IT).
