Brakes go Tick Tick Tick

This is probably an easy question, but I'm not smart enough to answer it.

I have a V8 conversion Sonoma with drums in the rear. When I hit the brakes, I hear a "tick tick tick tick " sound from the right rear drum. I've had it apart and I can't see anything wrong with it. Someone told me the springs on the shoes may be getting weak. Does anyone have any ideas????

Thanks for your help,

Dave

Are you sure it's the brakes? ....Is the drum out of round?

Could be a wheel bearing, although if it was, the seal would probably be leaking. Other possibilities are the tire, "U" joints....................

Does this only happen at slow speeds or maybe the first or so stops? Are the brakes wet (morning dew if the truck sits outside) or has the truck sat for any period of time (rust build up)? Sounds like the brake shoes are sticking to the brake drum and rotating with the drum until they cant go any further and then snaps back in place. Does the drum have a smooth surface to it where it makes contact with the shoes? any prior axle seal leaks? May have contaminated shoes. Weak spring could be an issue but still needs something to make the shoes stick and hold to the drum (if this is what it is doing). Hope this helps

Steve

i've heard this noise on several vehicles, it's caused by a out of round drum and brake shoes out of adjustment. together they will make the sound you are hearing. good luck.

I have seen this many times on hondas after someone turns the drums and they do not get a good smooth cut.Did you just have the drums turned?

Tick Tick Tick

"TICK TICK TICK" By the Kingston Trio, 1964. Neat song. Don't know anything about brakes though.
