Symptoms:

  • No Reverse
  • Soft Reverse

Cause:

OE band strut is too short to adequately hold after drum resurfacing.

Correction:

Use Sonnax extended length band struts to compensate for drums that have become undersized by O.D. resurfacing.

After the Low/Reverse brake drum has been resurfaced and the brake band has been relined, the band may not hold during apply, causing a slip or no reverse. Sonnax offers two extended struts, 22900-10 and 22900-15, to address these problems.

  • 22900-10 is .100" longer than OE and 22900-15 is .150" longer to regain correct band adjustment
  • Use of Sonnax struts eliminates the need to use specially relined bands with a thicker lining
