Good shoes at today's "competitive" prices. Nowhere near as inexpensive as they used to be though. One big thing that is missing from this product is that there really needs to be good instructions included in the box that tell the installer how to correctly install the shoes. It is critical that the longer lined shoe be installed as the rear, or "emergency/parking" brake shoe, and that the shorter lined shoe be installed to the front, or leading service brake shoe. If shoes are not installed in the correct locations, the brakes will still function, but very poorly, and could cause driver to get into an accident due to a lockup condition that is often caused when improperly installed.

The pads are OK, but needed to be modified to fit in my 1996 cavalier. With the adjusters backed all the way off, the drum was locked up. I had to grind some material off of the back of the shoes in order to fit.

            Rear brake shoes are in & feel good, The OEM set lasted 130,000 miles, hope these will last until the car dies. Put on about a 1,000 miles with the new set & all seems fine. Very good price for replacement shoes

                    For salvaging a car that has been abused, this is the way to go. The brakes fit up good and perform well. The price is also easy on a tight budget. The down side, it is what it is. Budget friendly brakes.

                          Make sure you check the holes on the brake shoes before you leave the store. I went to install and the self adjust hole where the spring was not drilled out. Took them back and exchanged them. No problem other than that
