Default 2003 L200 Rear Brakes are a pain

Hey, popping in to see if anyone has had this problem before, Ive had my L200 for a couple years now and last year my passenger rear brake pretty much fell apart in the drum. I got it fixed, then the driver said did something similar, now for the last year Ive had to replace both sides brakes pieces (cylinder, springs, other parts) now weve done this 2 times on each side and without fail they brake again.

Is there something wrong with the replacement kits or something that makes this happen? I doubt weve done them wrong, the brakes work perfectly for months then they brake one by one.

I think I read that one of the springs in the kit is incorrect. That might be your problem. There was a discussion over on Saturnfans.

I heard this as well before from the saturnfans forum, I've been unable so far to find the post again talking about it, I remember it being something about the fork needing to be adjusted in the replacement kits to account for the different size pads in the drum or something.
