The inside of a brake drum is a harsh environment, with parts continually exposed to extreme heat. After many years and miles this can take its toll on springs, weakening them and causing them to lose their tension. The parking brake strut is attached to the parking brake lever and brake shoes, and is activated when the parking brake is applied, forcing the shoes against the drum to keep the vehicle from moving. The strut spring is installed on the end of the strut bar and keeps it from rattling when the parking brake is not in use. If the spring becomes weak it can result in noise when the parking brake is off. To keep your brakes quiet, replace these springs whenever new brake shoes are installed.
