Default Rear Brakes 03 PT HELP HELP HELP

Ok, I am running a 2003 PT Stander no bells or anything like that.

Went to remove the rear wheel to do the brakes and find I have disk and Drum... both
Now.. I am like... ahhh... Help... When I went the auto store they gave me just the disk brakes....... Now what do the Drums do? the E brake?

Thanks... Need to know if I need to replace the drums as well... or just remove them and run off my disk brakes on the rear.......

thanks,
Brandon,

The shoes are for your parking brake, they should last forever. Your stopping with the front and rear disks and those are the only ones you should have to change.

I hope you got ceramics to cut down on brake dust on the front.

I assume you have disc brakes

There I belive were two, one for the GT and one for Touring, rotors are different width so pads ae different thickness and calipers are different so get the correct parts.

Your e-brake is a pair of shoes which contact the area in the "hat"

Mine delaminated from the steel backing plates. I bought new -brake shoes and the hardware kit(clips and springs) to repalce them along with new rotors and pads.

Only front disks are different - thicker for Turbos. I am quite positive there are only 1 thickness of disk for the rear - you either have drums rears or rear disk (with a parking drum brake hidden).

No

There is a disc brake for the touring version that was an option.

I did my rear disc brakes in on my 2003GT in 06. I got rotors and pads. The GT rotors are thicker and the pads are thinner by like .060. They gave me the correct rotors but the pads would not fit. I had to take them back to Advance auto and get the correct pads.

They call them out as GT perf package with 4 whl ABS Wagner MX782
Touring with 4 whl ABS Except Perf Pack Wagner MX759

THe GT rotors are .470" thick and the others are .350

It is covered on page 5-14 of the FSM on rotor thickness, 9mm vs 12 mm.
