Spartan does not make brake components they are made by bendex or another brake company so you should be able to get them from any truck supply store. If they are drum brakes check for seperation between the shoe and lining this is a problem and what causes earley brake fade. also check all your cams and bearings for free movment and bearing clearace. Also when your done make shure they are adjusted properly and reajust them after 2 or 3 hundred mile. just trying to help because this is no small job and it's a very important part of the MH.

Hi
I have been to four diferent truck part houses and to no avail. The shoes are spicer 150kb129x and I can only get new ones from Spartan parts. I have sent the shoes off to a local reliner company in Lincoln Ne. and will see if they can be done by today.
The coach has 146,000 miles and I took it out last weekend for a two hundred mile trip to a recall center for a recall of my fridge last weekend. When I got back in to my home town I found out that I didn't have any park brakes. I took off the rear wheels and found that the brakes were shot. I replaced them over last weekend.
Then I took the coach out for a alignment on tuesday and when I got home I took off the front tires to replace the tires with new ones that I had. I then took off the front brake drums to inspect the shoes. They were both shot that is where the trouble started. I can't believe with all the coaches out in the world that these brakes are so rare.
Thanks for your input.
