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.

Volvo 245 - Brake Caliper Replacement (Driver Side Rear, Passenger Side Rear) - Portland, Oregon
Second job from your mechanic and again Clint was my mechanic. The man is quick, professional & very knowledgeable. He took time to show me the parts & explain their individual functions as well as why they were needed. This is the only mechanic to EVER do this at my request without complaint. I so appreciate being treated as an equal instead of a "dumb female" customer that's just a pain in the butt. Thank you again for having such a talented person on staff. I have already recommended your service to several friends & will continue to do so. Thanks again.

Volvo 245 - Brake System Inspection - Portland, Oregon
I would have posted this earlier but thought you guys get the YELP appraisals. This guy was awesome, taking time to show & explain extra work I needed done for safety purposes regarding the brakes. He was in no way condescending simply because I am an older woman & not a mechanic which was so, so refreshing. I would highly recommend your service to any and all friends. This man needs to receive a bonus if not a hike in pay. Awesome service.
