Brake Shoe Replacement (Rear) Service

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.

Mercury Monterey V6-4.2L - Alternator - Tucson, Arizona
Very Pleased with Ramon's service visit, He was on time greeted me and wanted to know if I had any further questions, explained what he would be doing and went right to work, shortly after he noticed my radiator hose was about to burst, so I asked if I would go purchase a hose for my van could he stay and fix that in addition to replacing my alternator he replied Yes Sir, no problem. It ended up taking me a little over an hour to find a radiator hose and I was worried Ramon might get upset but he was there waiting for me with the old busted hose already off and ready for the new one. He is very skilled and knowledgeable with his service he provides I would highly recomend him to anyone needed a good solid well versed mechanic. I am glad I found him great guy, Thanks Ramon
