Brake squeal blues

Loud brake squeal last 2 wks forward or back on rear. L drum off showed crack on rear(secondary) pad. Purchased new pads & found shop who still turns drums. Installed pads & road tested. Things I learned. 1 Prof mechanic had installed both short pads on right & both long pads on left. this long pad cracked & should have been a short one. IE always pay attention to details.2Glad I did not ignore problem. 3 Buy set of springs ($10) as I broke primary(front) spring & had to make xtra trip to replace. 4 A#2phillips works well get springs back on(v carefully). lube screwdriver shaft. my reg remover/replacer tool had too large a dia. 5 Harder to do than I remember(10-12 yr ago). 6 Tires seem heavier every time I handle.LOL
