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.

Peter was awesome! He even taught me things about my car I never knew including explaining about the air pressure in my tires for the extreme temperatures in the southwest environment. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. It's difficult to find mechanics that service a SAAB where I live or that I would trust working on my car. He made an adjustment to my window that would not close all the way at no extra charge. Peter completed my 30,000 mile service at a cost much less than I would have paid at the dealer and did not try to tell me I needed things I didn't need that the dealer often did. It's difficult to find service people to come out to the rural area where I live. I totally trust Peter with my car repairs and maintenance. Was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. Having a record online of my repairs and maintenance is an added benefit. Will never take my car to the dealer again. Look forward to the next time I need service instead of dreading it. Highly recommend Peter and this company. Have told all my friends and family about it. Thank you so much Peter!

My service appointment with Allen was very good. He arrived early and that was ok as well. He was very accommodating to my questions and concerns. He made me feel comfortable and I can trust his knowledge, experience and knowing he will do the job right. It was important to him that the job was done right and to be honest with all the work done and to be done in the future. He even adjusted the initial quote as I did not need as many quarts of oil as was originally estimated. This is important and goes a long way in developing trust and a long term relationship to look after my car. This made me feel more at ease and I will definitely be utilizing Allen again at Your Mechanic to help me keep my car running and on the road. Very good experience and Allen was top notch.

Brikk has always on time like to the minute. I can see he is methodical in his work and extremely clean. I layed down a blue tarp under the car before he came for an oil change and head gasket replacement. Not a drop of oil on the tarp.
