    Went and tried to get an inspection. Only thing that failed is the parking brake. Does this have anything to do with it?

    None, yet....
    Looks like you got a seal leak that’s seeped so badly it got outside. Probably coated the brakes shoes, which is effectively your parking brake. I’d pull that drum off and start investigating where the oil is coming from.

    I'm going to guess it failed because it would not hold the truck either in gear or on an incline, which is probably due to the axle shaft seal leaking and the parking brake being out of adjustment. I would plan on doing seals, resurface the drums, new brake shoes, and new hardware kit. I would also inspect the bearings while in there.

    Yeah bud. Seals blown. Mine went at 153k miles.

    BTW my parking brake has never really operated properly since new. Its a design flaw. You can adjust the brake, but its temporary and sucky at best.

    So since I'm gonna do the rear brakes anyways, I guess I'll hit the seals too. I'm just guessing that means I'm doing the rear diff juice too. And since I'm doing the rear may as well hit the front and transfer case. It never ends! :(

    Yours is coming up on that turning point of reinvestment. You get through this work and that front suspension stuff in your other thread and you’ll be good to go for another 17 years.

    Noooo! I hear ya. Its a low risk gamble. I’m keeping my eye open on a donor truck just in case. May even get a 1st Gen Sequoia as a back up driver.
