HOW DOES BRAKE SHOES WORK?

Some vehicles are equipped with a brake system that is called a disc-drum set up. This refers to the style of brakes on the front and rear of the vehicle. Rear drum brakes have been the standard for many years in the automotive industry. Drum brakes generally cost less to produce than disc brake systems but are less efficient than their counterpart rear disc brakes. This is why there are featured on the rear of a vehicle only. Brake shoes are purchased in sets of four, two on each side. There can be two different brake shoes per side. A primary shoe has a little less friction material. This shoe goes toward the front of the vehicle, and the secondary shoe that has a bit more material that faces the rear of the vehicle. Some vehicles use brake shoes with the same amount of friction material in which case it doesn’t matter how they are installed.

 

On drum brakes the emergency brake job is done by the rear brake shoes. A mechanical activation system of the emergency brake uses the same principle of forcing the shoes outward against the drum helping to hold the car in place. Vehicles with rear disc brakes will use a smaller drum brake in the center of the rotor for the emergency brake.

 

WHAT GOES WRONG?

Under normal driving conditions friction between the shoe and drum will remove the brake material from the shoe. When the brake material wears beyond its limits the brake pedal will travel further downward than it should which gives the felling the brakes are not working as well. In general, if a vehicle’s parking brake doesn’t hold or the brake pedal travels to the end of its throw the rear brake shoes need to be checked for replacement. Brake fluid leaks can also be an issue as the wheel cylinder seals can leak coating the brakes shoes with brake fluid. Also, if the rear axle seal leaks it can coat the brake shoes with gear oil making the shoes grab and lock up. It seems strange that oil and brake fluid would make the brakes lock up because one would think it could allow the brakes to slip and slide making their action even less but this is not the case.

 

Rear drum brakes have a tendency to grab and lock-up even without the introduction of brake fluid or gear oil. This is due to over worn shoes contacting too much surface area inside the drum. Locking up can be due to the brake shoe being sprung which allows the very top and bottom of the shoe to contact the drum. The center of the shoe should be the only part that contacts the drum.

 

HOW MUCH DOES BRAKE SHOES COST?

When replacing your brake shoes and drums cost is always at the back of our minds, but this is really not the place to skimp on quality. New OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) shoes are made of better material and will outperform cheaper brakes over the long run. Another difference in shoes will be how the friction material is attached to the shoe frame or metal backing. There are generally two methods which are used; bonded (glued) or riveted. Smaller shoes tend to be bonded while larger shoes tend to be riveted. The size of the shoe greatly determines the cost for example; a smaller shoe set for a compact car can cost between $14.00 and $28.00 (US) while larger shoe sets can cost between $35.00 and $65.00 (US). Drums will typically cost between $16.00 and $35.00 (US). If you are having the job done at a local garage or dealership it can run between $220.00 and $360.00 (US). You can see the price difference between having it done and doing it yourself is quite substantial. On older vehicles and spring hardware kit can also be purchased which runs about $15.00 (US).

 

HOW LONG DO BRAKE SHOES LAST?

Brake shoes tend to last about twice as long as the front pads due to the car’s brake bias (front to rear ratio). You can expect the shoes and drum to last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driving habits and the design of the brake system.

 

SHOULD I ADJUST MY BRAKE SHOES?

Drum brakes incorporate an automatic adjusting mechanism but sometimes it may not work as intended and become frozen do to the extreme heat or water they car endure from normal usage. Some vehicles have a window or slot in the backing plate where you can access the adjuster to manually adjust the brakes. If no access slot is visible the wheel and drum must be removed to adjust the shoes.
