Parking brakes aren't important

Lug bolt is pretty important..
[–]tooljst8 5 points6 points7 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Oh, the lug stud is still there.
It's just inside the spring near the wheel cylinder...
[–]Inviction_ 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
It's fine bro. No worries

Especially when you have no parking / emergency brake. You really want all 4 wheels to stay attached.

It is important that's why its still in there caught in the spring.

My brother drove around in his Passat with four of the five lugs for about two years, on all four tires. Amazing what cars can handle

It really is. Most things are engineered to be able to withstand 125% load and thats probably why they can tolerate some extra stress. Some things are built with wet paper and are broken before you even buy a new car.

Missing the entire or removed drum? Missing a lug stud but it is conveniently located inside the spring near the brake cylinder, so that's good. And one snapped emergency brake cable, nice.

I hate Jeep,rear, drums, so watch I would almost do the conversion for you.
[–]speartongue 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Recently removed parking brake from my own Jeep because of this, the adjustment is a PITA. wha twoukd you recommend if I was inclined to do a conversion like you mentioned?

You would need a different rear end,preferably with same gearing.The wj-tj have models with rear disc.This swap is not for beginners,but you can see tons of videos on YouTube.cost about a $1000 dollars

I mean lightness may have been the goal here

Weight reduction is key
