Re: 03 Taurus rear brakes... help please
Am having the same issue with mine. Did the driver side rear drum w/ no issues. went to do the pass., side and found out the that side wasnt working at all. Brake fluid had been leaking in the drum. Well I replaced the leaking Wheel Cylinder, new hardware , drum and shoes. Adjusted them up so w/ the tire on it only spins 1 turn. bled the brakes no air, clean fluid. when i took it for a drive the brakes work great. Except when I brake around 30-20 I get a clunk clunk from that side. It dosnt happen when when I am off the brakes. Went back and checked the springs and shoes everything is perfect. Even rebled them.
am starting to think it may not be the brakes at all but perhaps the action of brakeing is making something else rattle, like a bushing is gone and its rubbing metal to metal. remember that side wasnt working at all.
let me know how you make out.
