    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.

    So I'm about to order parts. Wheel bearings, axle seals, and all new rear brakes. Is there anything else I should replace while I'm in there?

    I would check the drum to make sure it can be turned. Start off with a new surface for the brake shoes.

    I'm just gonna buy a whole new kit for the brakes. New drums, shoes, hardware, and cylinders.

    I would also look at the exploded view and make sure there isn’t any retainers or c-clips you’ll need. Seems like my 4runner needed new retainers or something like that.

    After looking through all the various brands and parts I have no idea what I need as far as the axle seals go. Any tips on what I need? I'm doing the seals, bearing and brakes.

    For one side, you need an inner oil seal, the bearing, and the outer dust seal, and the hub o-ring. The spacer collar that the inner oil seal runs on is also difficult to get off without damage, as is the tone wheel for the ABS sensor.

    When reassembling, the inner collar and tone wheel DO NOT get pressed tight against the snap ring and the outer spacer collar, and if you do the seal will leak right away. Pressing bearings off the axle shaft is a pain in the butt without any special tools. Here’s a picture of a tool I built to remove the tone wheel and inner collar with a press without damage, and shows what you’ll see when you pull the axle assembly.


    I also built a tool that attaches to the four studs on the hub to press the axle shaft out of the bearing / bearing housing.

    Thank you! I'm gonna pull the axle and take it to a shop to get everything pressed together. Probably rent a deal pulley to if need be. Any special tools to set the inner axle seal or general dis/reassembly?

    Post ‘how to’ pics! Make it look easy and I’ll DIY. Otherwise, its going to the shop when mine need done. This looks like a pro job.

    Call your stealership and tell them you are diy and ask them for the whole list of parts you need. They do this for their service dept. so should be pretty dialed in. You can also price check with that list from above.

    I did this when doing some other work and the parts lady helped me out with some additional parts I overlooked. $Pent $tealership prices but had ALL the right quality parts with no problems or additional running around.

    Just missing the o-ring between the hub assembly and the axle housing, assuming the shop that does your pressing can get your ABS tone rings and inner collars off without damaging them.
