Brakes problem
2000 Hyundai Elantra Two Wheel Drive Automatic

WHEN REPLACING REAR DRUM BRAKE PADS THAT ARE STILL WELL ABOVE THE RIVETS, IS IT NECESSARY OR ADVISEABLE TO ALSO RE-MACHINE THE DRUMS? COULD THIS CREATE A PROBLEM OF CURVATURE THAT WON'T MATCH THE NEW PADS.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Hi LARLEW,

If there is no abnormal wear of the drums, it is not necessary to reface them.

There is also a limit for refacing drums and brake shoes do not sit 100 % on the drum. It takes some time to wear in.
