This was a great experience having Tom work on my Volvo at home. I'm sold on the service, price and convenience. There was no problem installing the parts that I had purchased. I'll be scheduling additional work.

All about Brake Shoe Replacement

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.
