Hello all. New member here and am amazed at the wealth of knowledge on this site. Unfortunately my first post is a question.
I have a 2007 Titan tow package and am replacing the rear parking brake shoes. The reality is the parking brakes on this vehicle are poor and due to that and my stupidity have driven on a couple of occassions with them on. Not that big of a deal as I recently replaced my rotors and calipers anyhow but was in a ruch and am now replacing the parking shoes and other components.
When I removed the rotor, I damaged the backing plate where the shoe retaining pins are housed. I am now replacing the backing plate but need to remove the axle as the plate does not fit over the wheel stud hub.
Is there any issues I should be aware of when removing the axle? I am presuming that there is an E-clip or similar inside the diff housing that I remove then simply slide out the shaft. Any advice would be appreciated before I finish tearing it apart tonight. Also, what rear end juice is recomended for this vehicle. I tow to the max regularly.
Thanks in advance, Jim
