checklist for brakes, shocks, regrease
Here is my check list. Am I missing anything obvious?
Loosen lug nuts
Jack trailer up and secure with jack stands
Have some spray stuff to loosen bolts
Remove dust cap and pin
Pull off drums
Pull off backing plates
Install new brake (dexter self adjusting) plates on correct sides.
Don't squish wiring
shrink wrap or nuts with tape
Get drums checked to see if they need machining
Install new shocks
slightly bend bracket to get them off
cut washer in half to facilitate installation
Repack hubs and look for damaged bearings
have couple bottles of brakes degreaser
buy new seals
buy axle grease
new cotter pin
Put everything back together and take it for a test drive.
Brakes adjust themselves. Activate brakes on a dirt road to see if all four brakes are working.
Thanks a bunch
We will soon begin traveling with our family of 5 (and a large dog) Looking forward to remodeling our Airstream, awesome adventures, and meeting new people.
