Brake shoes are found only at the rear wheels for cars that have a brake drum system. When you step on the brake pedal, the brake shoes press against the brake drums to cause friction that slows down the car to a complete stop. Brake shoes usually last twice as long as brake pads.
A brake drum is a smooth metal cylindrical housing attached to the rear wheel hub. It is an essential component of your car’s braking system that enables you to slow down or stop. As part of the braking system, when pushing on the brake pedal, it causes the brake shoes to press against the brake drums, creating friction and eventually putting the vehicle to a complete stop. As time progress, brake drums begin to wear and tear and need to be replaced.
If your brake shoes and drums are wearing thin, are warped, or are malfunctioning, it will cause your brake system to have difficulty slowing the vehicle down to a complete stop. Hence, it can be hazardous and dangerous for you and others on the road.
One of the best car experiences I've ever had. 10/10. Booked and quoted on the phone. George was a really nice guy. Knowledgable and practical. Only did the work that was needed with a head's up of when to expect future service. All for a competitive price while I continued with my normal day in my own home. Why didn't anyone think of this before?! I will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends.
