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.

Andrew was very professional and I couldn't ask for anything better. I got texts when he was on his way, when he got to work, and when he was done. It was so easy. I can't imagine using a physical shop when guys like Andrew are available. My brakes and oil change were done well and there were no extra charges. Great job thank you!

Aaron did a great job. I originally booked for front breaks, but when he arrived for the appointment I decided I wanted to do front and rear breaks. Turns out, I was gonna need rotors, etc. anyway. Aaron booked me for another day, and kept good contact with me as there was a 1 day delay in parts arriving. Turns out the rotors were savable, and Aaron saved me some cash. Excellent experience overall, and more importantly I did not have to sit and wait at a repair shop. Thanks Aaron. I'll be back. I was recommended this service by a friend.
