Drum brakes are a simple yet critical component of your vehicle. Squealing, low or spongy brake pedal, wheel grab, or pulling to one side or the other while braking are all warning signs not to be ignored. While inspecting drum brakes, also look for signs of leaking brake fluid. Dark or damp brake dust can mean wheel cylinder or axle seal failure.
Warning! Never reinstall worn brake components of any kind.

Why you should inspect and replace your car brake shoes:
Worn shoes can dramatically reduce the stopping power of your vehicle. Ignoring worn shoes can lead to more expensive repairs such as grooved brake drums that will have to be replaced. Worn rear shoes will also accelerate front disc pad wear, causing a low brake pedal and delayed braking response.
