Failure Date: 10/01/2006

My 2003 chevy Venture lt van (41,000 mi on it) stopped at the bottom of my driveway and would not go forward. My son-in-law, ( a mechanic) checked the left back brake and found a large heavy duty spring and broken in half that held the brake shoe together. I do not know if this is a defect but it could have been dangerous if I had been on the highway and the left back wheel had frozen up on me. My son-in-law purchased a new spring from a parts dealer as the chevy dealer (did not have any in stock?). He has repaired it.
