I have a 86 Sun-Land Express. It appears I have the LH studs on the left rear. 

Are the left front studs left hand as well?

No just the rear tires. When I've had tires installed I literally hover outside the door to make sure they listened to me and you must always tell anyone who is going to remove the tires. Lots of members have ended up with sheared off studs from repair guys who didn't know or didn't listen

Defrag4,

 1st time poster here. I recently acquired a 1988 Sunrader 4 cyl. It needs a full break job, from calipers to needing the flexible break lines replaced. Where do I find the specific model number you posted to confirm the parts you listed will fit my coach? Thanks Tim

I think your VIN should be enough to find parts.

Hi, I have a 1985 Toyota Dolphin - 20 ft. I've owned it 4 years. 

I do have the retrofitted 1-ton rear axle with full-floating, 6 lug wheels - dualies. 

I now (today) have a rear drum brakes that need replacing and as it turns out, the mechanic shop got the wrong part and can't find the parts. They tell me I need to know which axle I have - other than what I have said here. 

I'm in Flagstaff Arizona. 

Can anyone here help with info or parts?

Hey Linda S, thanks!

I don't know much about brake parts. These shoes are for the drum brakes?

Mechanics said I need "this & that" (my words) and springs - etc. How do I know what to order for total break job?

What does 3w stand for?

I'm having a difficult time using the site. Hopefully I'll figure it out!

It is wonderful to experience the sharing.

still need more brake info.

A rear brake job has much more than brake shoes.

Labor is a major part of the project, so "saving" money by not buying a $10 part is not a good idea.

From memory 😆 here is most of what you need.

Rear brake shoes, rear brake cylinders,  an inner and outer axle seals. Depending on what things look like you may also need inner and outer rear axle bearings and a brake spring kit.

All this is for one side.

MAKE SURE the mechanic knows that the Toyota rear axle bearings are lubed by the rear axle lube and not by packing the bearings, the rear axle seals are IMPORTANT.

There is a full list of things with part numbers in the first post in this thread

Thank you both Linda S & WME. I appreciate the info have copied it all down. I am much more informed and am glad the yesterday mechanics couldn't find the parts as they likely wouldn't have done the job correctly. 

As far as parts list at beginning of topic - I don't understand. Does the '88 pickup have the same rear axle? Or would the brake shoe parts from Amazon lead me to all the rest? Vin # doesn't do it as that's also what the yesterday mechanics used. 

What do I say to order all the correct parts, or for the mechanic to order? Yesterday they told me I needed the specific axle info. 

I really do appreciate your time and efforts on my account. Thanks again.

I would buy the brake shoes I posted though. Better brand

Your vin is useless to find rear axle parts because that rear axle didn't come on your rig. It was upgraded, probably by National Rv after the recall. 3W is a part of the model number in all Toyota full float dually trucks from 1986 to 1993. 

Does your mechanic realize that he has to pull the axle to get to the brakes? Ask him and if he says no that's wrong find another mechanic

Thanks Linda, I definitely won't be using same mechanic.

Wow! Didn't know you had to pull axle for the job. But hey, I only want it done right!

Are the brake shoes the only thing you'd buy the other/better brand, as far as the list goes? All the rest good?

this is an extremely great help. Now I have to find the right mechanic. If you think of something else I should know - please share.

Some of the parts listed you probably don't need. The wheel stud and stud nut are  to put your tires on.  Not part of brake job. Also the listing for acorn is the axle bolt. Those are probably ok too the Toyota part right under that is the acorn nut that you will need to replace. Most people don't replace wheel cylinders if they are not leaking but in this case with any work being such an extensive job replace them for good measure. Remember there are 2 sides here so order enough for both sides, 2 each of seal , etc. Oh and all the rest is fine. Just like the shoes I posted way better

I appreciate the good advice and details. If I can just find a mechanic that wants to do the work that has to be done - life will be good!

Thanks very much, I've no doubt you're very aware how much I needed this information.

 

I'm in Flagstaff, AZ - if anyone has a mechanic recommendation.

Thanks for putting this parts list together...used it to rebuild my rear brakes recently.  I decided to just change out everything since it requires some work to get into the drums.

 

I did notice one thing with the Rear Wheel Cylinder - Dorman W37654.  They appear to be a exact match except for the brake line port.  W37654 has US thread 3/8-24, but all the brake flare fittings on the camper are all Metric 10mm-1.0.  They will thread in but easily crossthread.  Has anyone else run into this issue?  I am going to cut the lines and switcth the flare fittings to US thread instead of removing the wheel cylinders.  Looked around for a similar 7/8 bore wheel cylinder for 1 ton trucks with Metric Thread but have not found one yet.

Yes, it was upgraded to the full float.  I kinda assumed the drum brakes and hard lines to the "T" union were all part of the rear end upgrade correct?  If it was a Toyota full float axle, wouldnt all the brake fittings be Metric?  Or were there various rear ends uses for these upgrades?

Rock Auto has several and that part number is among them. I can't imagine a company making parts for a Toyota without it being metric. Could the part you got have been packaged wrong?. Here's what they've got and all of these have the Toyota factory part number as alternate part # ending in 26090

Just curious do you have custom 15 inch dually wheels in the back?

When i went to thread in the brake line it stripped out the flare nut.  When i looked up the part number on Dormans website it lists the part for Toyota 1-ton, but 3/8-24 port thread.

 

https://www.dormanproducts.com/p-25723-w37654.aspx

 

The wheels appear to be custom 6 lug steel wheels.

I would send them an email and ask why it isn't metric. Tell them you have 10,000 Toyota group members who need to know. Maybe not that many here but between all the groups there are and I have a big mouth. Nice rig

Linda S

Oh and you have a vented door under the 4X4 label. Is there still a generator in there?

Oh and did you buy this rig from Steve?

That compartment holds the propane tanks under the back bench. 

 

I would have to look back in my records, but i dont believe the previous owner was Steve.
