REPLACING DRUM BRAKE SHOES

BRAKE DRUM SHOE REPLACEMENT

Today we’ll go over replacing brake drum shoes. Newer vehicles will have disc brakes all around (thank God for small favors). Unless you’re very mechanically inclined, I don’t recommend taking on this task by yourself. To me, changing these are one of the biggest pains going for what should be something simple. Who ever invented these had to be high on something!

I’m not going to spend a lot of time trying to explain how this is done, instead I’m going to include a video from EricTheCarGuy that will demonstrate why you’ll probably want to either get a good friend to do the replacement for you, or just go ahead and pay an auto shop to have it done!

  5. Drum brakes suck so bad, had a 62 Pontiac and when the brakes needed redoing I went ahead and had the whole thing switched over to disc brakes, what a difference that made.
