2003 Ford Focus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 91800 miles
I just got my whole rear brake system done. New drums, brake shoes, and wheel cylinders (the old wheel cylinders were leaking). I got the car back and started driving it home, and noticed when braking that the car was now shaking! The shaking does not feel like it is coming through the steering wheel. It feels like it is the whole back end that is shaking now.
When I am applying the brake pedal now at low speeds (10mph or less), it feels like the brakes are only working half the time. I can feel that the brakes grab and release, grab, release, like they are only braking over half the braking surface.
Also, when I took the car in, the emergency/parking brake had pressure to it. I could pull it maybe a few clicks before it was tight. Now I can pull it all the way up without problem. Any ideas on what the shop did wrong that would be causing all this? I'd like to know what to kind of tell them so I don't have to go back to them several times to figure it out. Thank you!
