2020 Cyclone brakes making noise.

Rear passenger side brake is making a weird noise. Pulled hub and all the brake parts fell out. Tension springs were broken, pads where torn apart, hub had a nice size scratch in surface.
Trying to figure out manufacture of the axle and brakes for replacement parts and to chat with them. Does anyone know who that might be. Think I narrowed to dexter ( looks like there stuff online). Or Lippert.

We replaced all of our brakes, axles suspension.
Upgraded to disc brakes, 8000lb axles, slipper springs and shocks.. one of the best upgrades. 2017 4018 cyclone

Right after I sent this I went out and took a picture of that. Thanks for the info. I actually reached out to dexter and waiting on a reply. I will keep you all posted.

I had the exact same thing happen on my Bighorn in the exact same spot, rear passenger side. I pulled all of my other drums to inspect the remaining wheels and all of the others were fine. Quite a few parts fell out of the right rear, but a few were actually totally missing. Everything was covered with grease and totally destroyed. The axle seal was loose from the drum and just hanging on the spindle. I am in the process of finding out if I can replace this Dexter mess with a Lippert unit if the Lippert unit will fit my Dexter axle. I don't really want to take a chance on another Dexter mess. I also have to replace the drum.

Hum, same thing happened to me in 2014 on our 2012 Bighorn with Dexter axles. Rear passenger side. Because of that, when we got our current 2016 Bighorn I installed disc brakes.

I don't know what your financial picture is, or where you are located, but this might be an opportune time to check out a MorRyde Independent Suspension/disk brakes upgrade in Elkhart. https://www.morryde.com/products/independent-suspension-system/
