Default Dodge Dana 70 rear brake complete hardware kit?

I'm planing to perform a complete rebuild of the drum brakes on the rear of a 1996 Dodge Dana 70 with 13" x 2.5" drums. Unfortunately, I need everything, as the rear axle only came with the drums, backing plates and wheel cylinders (without the pushrod parts that push against the shoes) only. Does anyone know where I can find a complete hardware kit or am I going to have to find parts like the parking brake strut+ spring, parking brake lever and wheel cylinder shoe pins, etc. separately?

Parts store has always been able to come up with them for me. Two or three different kits generally provide every part in there...... Check with your local parts stores, or Rock Auto......

I'm not having much luck finding the parts I need to do this brake job. I need the wheel cylinder pushrods (4761607), the shoe guide plates (4761598) and the parking brake lever and strut package (4761585). Anyone know of any good sources for these parts?

Can't buy the push rods. The show guide plates do you mean backing plate? Should be able to get the last one

The guide plates are available from any parts store that carries dorman products. (probably in the "Help" section) May have to source the rest from a junkyard.

I do mean shoe guide plates - they are shaped somewhat like diamonds with a hole in the center - they sit at the brake shoe pivot point behind the brake springs at the top of the backing plate.

Ok I understand now. As HeyYou said check the help section. The parking brake assembly can be bought. I know advance calls it "Rear Secondary Brake Assembly"

That's what I was afraid of. They are somewhat hard to find, as 3/4 ton Dodge trucks don't seem to make it to the self-serve yards in this area very often.

Push rods might be the same from a lighter duty axle. I have 1 ton wheel cylinders in my 1/2 ton. The push rods fit the same.

Thanks. I'll check that out. Might be the same for the shoe guide plates, too.
