Default Brakes - warm drum

Just replaced the brakes on a '08 Precedent. I have never done it before, but other than getting the springs back in it wasn't too tough.

I drove the cart and used the brakes frequently to get them burnished and allow the self adjusters to operate. After that I adjusted the brake cable rod/yoke per the repair manual. Brakes work great and there is no pull left when braking.

Any idea why the left rear is heating and the right one isn't? I suspect the shoes will wear in and the problem will go away, but since I've never done the job before I'm wondering if there could be a problem with one of the adjusters.

Anyone have a similar experience?

The left brake cable is shorter and it flexes less so the left brake will always want to grab first.

Thx..sounds like I didn't screw up the adjuster.....or something else. Curious. Do you remove the hub when working on the brakes. I was going to but couldn't get the snap ring out even with the proper tool.

It is a PITA, but you can work around it. To get the axle out you need a pair of 90 degree snap ring pliers and then when you get it out you may have wrecked the seal.
