Great brake shoes and a great price.

Needed to shoes to replace separating ones, and these were perfect. I didn't want to spend a high performance price and these were exactly that. Low cost and good quality.

The shoes were the exact fit for my car.They were relined in a neat professional manner.

But, they were delivered without the required spring anchors. A clerk supplied me with a set of anchors free of charge. The first anchor was practically destroyed by trying to hammer in. It was necessary to carefully file the hole to allow for hammering and still preserve a tight fit. A hydraulic press should be used. I would never again buy this product without the anchors being professionally installed. John

Brake shoe linings weren't centered on shoe(side to side)
Pin for E-Brake hard to center while pressing in due to excess coating in hole.

Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

I have always hated working on drum brakes, but when i do work on them.... I use the wearever because they are identical to the OEM.
Not sure how well they will wear yet.

Not for a Sable, or Taurus

Pros

  • Cheap

Cons

  • Impossible To Assemble

Best Uses

  • Wasting Time

Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

I am not sure about other vehicles, but for my 02 Sable, the pin would not go into the shoe without excessive hammering.

I got one in with grease, effort and time, but then the top was bent and crooked, which I was able to straighten. The other was unrepairable after it went in.

IMPORTANT: make sure the pin will fit before you leave the store! will save you so much time.

            You must press the locating pin for the adjuster into the shoes. They don't come installed. The pins are to large to fit in the shoes. No way they will go in. I called back the AA were I purchased the brakes and they got a set off the shelf to check the pin fitment. They said the ones they had there fit fine went in right up to the shoulder. I said great I will be right there we can swap them out. Thinking I had got a defective set I found a ride to the store. The counter guy said well we have two other sets here and after you called we found that the pins don't fit in any of them. I said so what then, give me a refund. They said oh no, just hang on a minute. They pulled a drill with a tapered bit from under the counter. Then proceded to drill out the shoes so the pivot pins would fit. They obviously have done this before. The set up was in arms reach.
            These are "Exact Fit for your 2000 Ford Taurus SEL". Yeah right! More like universal fit, some customization needed!
            DON'T DO IT!
            An hour of my life I'll never get back standing at Advanced. I had to get a ride to the shop, so they sat for an hour too. Just a little upset.

              You must have a way to press the park brake lever pin into the shoes. You will not be able to hammer the pin in place without damaging it. So, unless you have a way to press the pin I suggest searching for a different set of shoe with the pin already pressed into the shoes. Would have been nice if I had know this before disassembling the drum brakes.

                Worked perfect in my vehicle, 2002 Ford Taurus. Inexpensive and in stock. I didn't need any modifications or anything to get it to fit. Brakes nice and tight without any squealing or other noises. Lifetime warranty so can't complain.
