What'* the procedure for the rear drums? I think I've narrowed down my pulsing brakes to the drums, since the front pads are new and the rotor runout is less that 0.003" on both sides, and I can duplicate the pulsing by applying the parking brake while moving.

My advice to you would be not to tackle rear brakes without a maintenance manual of some sort. Rears are totally different than the front.

Hmmm. You should be able to take off the caliper at this time. Those Slide Bolts do come out so you can clean and relubricate them with some silicone grease. Try tapping the caliper with a soft hammer. It should come off.

The easiet way to do the back brakes is to do one side at a time. So that the other side u can look at for a visual
