Just wondering I fixed my wheel seal today, keep my fingers crossed, anyway I had to completely tear apart the emergency brake cuz it was completely covered with gear lube. Well after I got everything together I noticed the big spring for the emergency brake on the ground. Do I need to be concerned

Oh yeah my diff was 2 quarts low, no weird noises, should I be concerned about this as well

Well put Jim. When I was 17 I didn't worry about brakes, just getting the most out of an old blue flame 6...then the brain cells started to function somewhat normally before I did any damage! Now I go too far the other way with pad/shoe changes at about 50% wear but I can send my family out in my vehicles with no worries.
Brake springs are a BIG component to ignore!
