I had a complete brake job done. 11,708 miles later the rear brakes were burned up and the drums were full of hot spots due to the shoes riding on the outside of the nipple (raised area on the back plate where the shoes ride on) on the back plate. The front brakes were just fine. I had to purchase new drums for the rear and new shoes. In my opinion the brake job was done incorrectly as the brakes did not last but a mere 11,708 miles. The drums and rotors were all turned at the time of the brake job. Based on the information given by the shop that did the work, something was wrong at the time of the work. I am a professional driver and do not ride the brakes. Can you elaborate on what caused the problem?
