How to Change Rear Brake Shoes
One of the most important safety features of a car is its ability to stop. Replacing the rear brake shoes on a car will ensure that the brakes are in good working order and ready to function properly in the event of an emergency. You can learn how to change rear brake shoes in a professional manner to save yourself money and to help you understand your car better.
Jack the vehicle up and remove the wheel. Park the vehicle on a firm, level surface. Use a tire iron or the appropriate socket to loosen the lug nuts on the first rear wheel, then slide a jack beneath one of the vehicle’s rear designated jack points to lift the vehicle up.
Always use jack stands when working on a jacked up vehicle.
Unscrew the lug nuts and remove the wheel.
Remove the dust cap with a screwdriver. With the wheel removed, you will be able to see the outside of the brake drum directly behind where the wheel used to be. The center of the circular brake drum is a removable dust cap. Slide a flat head screw driver into the gap beneath the dust cap and pry it toward you to remove it.
The dust cap may have rusted in place or could be stuck due to brake dust and road grime.
If the cap doesn’t come off easily, spray it with rust remover and allow it to sit for a minute before trying again.
Use a ratchet to unscrew the axle bearing nut. Beneath the dust cover, you’ll find the axle bearing nut. This large nut is usually a 22 or 24 millimeter metric socket, or a 7/8” standard socket. Use a breaker bar or half inch drive ratchet to turn the nut counterclockwise in order to remove it.
A traditional 3/8-inch drive socket wrench may not allow you to put enough pressure on the nut to break it loose.
Set the nut aside someplace safe for use when reinstalling the drum.

Twist the drum as you pull it backward to remove it. With the axle nut removed, the drum will no longer be held in place, but may still be stuck on due to rust or grime. Twist the drum slightly as you remove it to break it free from any rust.
The drum may be extremely difficult to remove.
Spray the drum with rust remover if it’s stuck. Rust removers can help loosen the grip created by rust on your vehicle’s drums. Spray it around the outside circumference of the drum where it meets the vehicle and give it a few minutes to set in. Then attempt to remove the drum again.
You may bang on the drum with a rubber mallet to help loosen it up.
Do not strike the drum with a hammer, as it may damage it.
If you are replacing the drum as well, it doesn’t matter if you damage it.

In most cars, brake shoes are found at the rear wheels while the brake pads are at the front wheels.

If you have been driving for a while, you know that brake shoes need to be replaced after some times.

This is because they undergo wear and tear.

This means that both brake pads and shoes need to be replaced occasionally.

But the big question here is, how long should I wait before I replace the brake shoes?

You need to be fully aware of the timing so as not to find yourself in an awkward situation.

In this article, we are going to tell you how long the brake shoes should last and when you should do a brake shoe replacement.

What do Brake Shoes Do?

To start us off, let’s first help you understand the function of brake shoes in a vehicle.

A brake shoe is among the most functional part of a brake system.

When you apply the brakes, the brake shoe will press against the brake drum.

As it does so, it exerts frictional force against the brake drum hence slowing down the rotation of the wheels.

The car will either slow down or come to a complete halt.

In other words, brake shoes in conjunction with other brake system components stop or slow down the speed at which the vehicle is moving.

What is the Average Lifespan of Brake Shoes

Now we are back to our original question: How long do brake shoes last?

Normally, brake shoes are designed to last between 35,000 miles and 50,000 miles.

However, some can be out of shape even before hitting 35,000 miles.

This is because there are several other factors that determine how long the brake shoes should last.

One of the key factors that can affect the lifespan of your brake shoes is where you drive.

If you in a city that usually experiences traffic jam, chances are your brake shoes won’t last for too long.

The same rule applies if you are fond of driving in an area that has bad terrain.

The type of vehicle that you drive will determine the lifespan of your brake shoes.

As you can see, most of these factors are beyond your control.

However, there are other internal factors that can make your brake shoes not to last for long.

One of them is driving with warped brake drums. This kind of drum will exert more friction on the brake shoe causing it to wear out prematurely.

How do you Know You Need New Brake Shoes?

Now it is clear that predicting the lifespan of the brake shoes is quite difficult.

So, how will I be able to tell that I need to replace my brake shoes?

The good news is there are several signs that can tell you to replace the brake shoes.

These signs include:

1.Checking the brake shoes to see what is left

Here you need to check brake shoes manually to see what is left. If it is less than 25% of its original thickness, know that it is time to do a brake shoe replacement.

With this sign, it means that you should check the brake shoes regularly to determine their thickness.

2.Squealing and screeching noises from the rear brakes

Since the brake shoes are usually found on the rear brakes, be keen on this noise especially when it is coming from the rear wheels of the car.

This could be a sign that the brake shoes are worn out beyond the required level such that the metallic parts have come into contact

3.Indicator lights of the brakes

Most modern vehicles are embedded with mechanisms that will warn drivers it is time to replace the brake shoes.

These lights are located on the dashboard and will turn on to warn you that the brake shoes are in a critical condition.

4.Unresponsive brake shoes

Have you noticed that your brake shoes are performing poorly than they used to do before?

They do not react very fast whenever you press the brake pedals.

This is one of the signs that show you have defective brake shoes.

Although there could be other minor signs, these are the main signs that will warn you of defective brake shoes.

A timely brake shoe replacement will save you from various calamities that can arise as a result of driving on defective brake shoes.

What is the Difference Between Brake Pads and Brake Shoes

This is a question that tends to disturb many people. Many tend to associate brake shoes with brake pads.

Are brake pads similar to the brake shoes?

No, there are some differences between the two brake components.

The main difference is their position in a vehicle.

Brake shoes specially designed to fit in the brake drum of a vehicle. In most cases, the drum brake system is positioned at the rear wheels of the vehicle.

On the other hand, brake pads are designed to rest on the brake rotor or brake discs.

They work hand in hand with the disc to slow down or stop the vehicle from moving.

What are the Brake Shoes Made of?


Another difference between brake pads and brake shoes is the material of make.

Brake pads are made from a wide range of materials including metals, organic materials and even ceramic.

On the other hand, the most common material for the brake shoe is the synthetic fibers or the synthetic aramid which came to replace asbestos.

Let’s say your brake shoes are worn out, what is the next step is to find a reliable and reputable brake she manufacturer in China.

You can be sure of finding high performance brake shoes from reputable manufacturers and suppliers.
