Brake Shoe Replacement (Rear) Service & Cost

What are the Brake Shoes (Rear) all about?

Brake shoes are found only at the rear wheels in cars with a drum brake system. When you step on the brake pedal, brake shoes press against the brake drums to cause friction that slows down the car. Brake shoes usually last twice as long as brake pads.

Keep in mind:

  • Both brake shoes should be replaced at the same time.
  • Damaged brake drums and leaky wheel cylinders can sometimes cause damage to brake shoes, so those elements may need replacing as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect brake shoes for contamination and thickness.
  • Replace brake shoes if faulty.
  • Adjust the brakes.
  • Inspect springs, backing plate, brake cylinders, brake drums, and emergency brake cable.
  • Lubricate the backing plate.
  • Perform basic safety inspection, including test drive.

Our recommendation:

It is a good idea to get the brake shoes inspected and measured once a year. To inspect brake shoes, the mechanic will usually have to take the tires off. If you are getting a brake service, and if the brake shoes are still good, just have them cleaned and adjusted. Get your brake system inspected if the brake warning light is on. If the shoes need replacing, we highly recommend ceramic brake shoes.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Shoes (Rear)?

  • Noise from rear brakes.
  • Hand brake does not hold.
  • Car shakes upon braking.

How important is this service?

All services associated with proper function of your brakes are important. In addition to safety issues, ignoring small repairs can quickly lead to more serious (and more expensive) problems.

Jamahl

My follow up with Jamahl went as expected. He came in, completed the job (in less than the time allotted), and kept the area he worked in the same condition as it was when he first got in. After the work done on my vehicle, it is now back to what I remember it sounding like! Put a smile on my face! Thank you Jamahl and to the guys at YourMechanic!

Dwight

My First time using "YourMechanic" and I was not sure what to expect. I was more than satisfied with the experience. I had a serious issue with my 2006 Mazda tribute, but didn't know how serious. The car is not safe to drive and I was looking at Nearly $100 Rnd trip to get it to a mechanic at a shop to be diagnosed. Then i was concerned about being a hostage to that shop. Dwight was incredible...knowledgeable (extremely), personable, professional...all the superlatives. The bottom line was that my car needs a new engine, which is not within the scope of the work "YourMechanic" does. No worries, Dwight made some recommendations and offered to look into some reputable shops that do this type of work. It wasn't good news by any means, but it was credible and not as bad as I had feared. Great job Dwight! It was a pleasure meeting you today.
