Q: Brake drum wear.

asked by on

https://dodgeforum.com/forum/2nd-gen-dakota/403872-rear-drums-and-shoes.html#post3343569 Check out the post for a picture of my brake shoes. Long story short is that my brake drums didn't stay adjusted, resulted in a lot of rattling in the back and scuffed up the shoes pretty good. Now that they are adjusted it isn't as bad, but I'm wondering if the shoes are still good to use. I'm going to replace the drums because they are warrantied but I don't want to have to put on new shoes because it's a pain. Any advice would be appreciated. I only drove with the drums unadjusted for about a week.
