At what point of wear are the rear brake shoes supposed to be replaced? I can't find information on a minimum shoe brake thickness. Can you help? Thanks

Hi,

Replacing rear brake shoes and drums is a little more involved than disc brake service. However, if you take your time, you shouldn't have any trouble doing it.

To get you started, here is a link that shows in general how it is done. You can use this as a guide.

If you look at the attachments below, they include the directions and pictures specific to your vehicle for replacement.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe
