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 Mountaineer V6-4.0L - Oxygen Sensor Replacement (Front/Upper/Upstream) - Virginia Beach, Virginia
Victor is always on time, with parts and everything he needs to put them on your vehicle. Victor is always prepared, he put wheel bearings and ball joints the other day on my SUV and I drove to Baltimore from Virginia beach yesterday with not a care on my mind whether he did his job right or not, my truck drove so smoothly. Today was EGR valve and of course he was prepared and it only took him an half hour, because he doesn't play around. He enjoys what he does and knows what he's doing. Victor explains what the part is and how it's needed on your vehicle. He explains everything. I feel so comfortable knowing he's the one coming to work on my vehicle for so many reasons, and one is I know it will be done right! That's my biggest worry when it comes to someone working on my vehicle. So, you can have your part or not, Victor will come to you..ON TIME.., GREAT PRICES.., PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE.., SO NICE.., I'M JUST TRYING TO SAY EVERYTHING IS THE BEST AND IT WOULD DO YOU A GREAT SERVICE TO JUST TRY MR. MECHANIC 1 TIME, YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID AND YOU'LL BE LIKE ME AND KEEP THEM FOR LIFE! VICTOR IS NOW MY LIFETIME MECHANIC !! THANK YOU A.DAYE
