Source of A1 parking brake linings

Post by compostwerks » Wed Jan 31, 2024 5:11 pm

Everyone seems to just sell complete shoes. Does anyone know where I can but just the lining and rivets as a kit here in the CONUS? I have a short stack of take out shoes that need linings.

Thanks, Pete

Got to search harder or phone call some of the reputable jeep parts vendors like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/175684697246?h ... R_jZsausYw

I believe I have NOS linings, but before you purchase just the linings check the holes in the metal parts of the shoe, the are usually worn oversized which cause chatter and adjustment issues. Warren Duchesne

It is open and John is doing fantastic. He's still taking it easy per doctor's orders. :wink:
