ARE THE REAR BREAKS FOR SHOES, PADS OR DRUMS?

Hi there I am asking on behalf of a friend who reckons her breaks need changing and would like to get the bits herself.

What's the question? A professional brake job consists of a lot more than just hanging new parts. Is she aware of what to clean, what to lubricate, and what can happen if greasy fingerprints get on the linings?

I was meaning she was getting the parts for the garage to fit as it was going to cost a fortune on parts. But the garage never told her if the breaks were shoes, drum or a discs/pads.

Providing your own parts for a shop is like bringing your own food to a restaurant. Not really the way things are done. Anyhow, I did a search on rockauto. Com and didn't see any reference to rear disc brakes, so typically there will be disc brakes on the front and drums on the rear.

Ok, thanks for that.
