Have had knocking noise in right rear brakes. Dealer stated that brake springs weren't functioning right and have continually resurfaced my drums. Replaced drums ON9/23/97 per service bullitin #235015. Now brake drums are at max specs because they can't resolve the problem, but only temp fix if by resurfacing drums, now they won't fix because they state that its they way I drive the car, when all along thry said it was the springs sticking and heating up the brakes. My drums need replacing and they won't fix it any longer
