I have owned the truck for a year 2002 international 4400 box truck with air brakes . Came time to change the rear brakes,linings were worn.Apon removal found the drums need to be changed as well, as they could not be reused.After installing new parts the bottom linings are sitting very close to the drum the top are in correct adjustment.this is causing the bottom linings to rub just enough so as that I can watch my fuel gauge go down.Three different mechanics plus the original one that did the work can't explain this problem.they all say that everything is working fine from the s-cam to the slack adjusters.I have removed the dust covers my self and can see the problem but don't have the solution. Can anyone help? (both sides)


removed Italics from text. Too hard to read.

Have you tried a different set of linings? Cheap linings may not be molded properly.

I don't know what you mean by heavy duty and medium. There is only one size and dimension for that truck, just different quality lining and bondings. You could have a problem with a flex hose not releasing properly too.

Since you've put different linings on. I would suggest turning the drums.

Doesn't happen a lot but a couple of times when I've had to change linings & drums, with all the new stuff on & the adjuster backed all the way off, everything was too tight.... After a couple of different sets of shoes I just wound up cutting the new drum to get the clearance I needed for the correct adjustment....

Re: 2002 international 4400 rear brake drag Sign In

have you checked the air pressure on the spring brake chamber when the parking brakes are released? If it is getting just enough to cage the spring but not enough to do it fully it can cause you grief. Also, what condition are the anchor pins and bushings in? Did you replace them with new ones or were they too frozen into the backing plate and left be? A worn anchor pin can screw with your dimension. Honestly I would double check for yourself that the s-cams are genuinely good. With the shoes off and slack clevis unhooked check front and rear bushings for play. If the hardware is still hooked up when you check it would have to be really bad to get play .
