Ouch man! I hope your alright. Yup drum brakes are dumb. I hated doing them. Rotors and calipers are much easier to change.

I do like the "tools" my instructor invented. Took flatheads and notched them. Makes getting return springs and the like off very easy. Especially on Toyotas version of a leading-trailing system.

I have a several notched flat heads I have used to do drum brakes. They do come in handy.

Never had to work on a drum brake in my life, and probably never will.

I've been looking for a driver side floor mat for the CS for years. When I went to the junkyard looking for Radio antenna parts I came across a really nice one.
