Brake shoes are a component of a drum brake system, which is typically found in the rear of the vehicle. They are responsible for providing the friction needed to slow down and stop the vehicle. When the brake pedal is pressed, the brake shoes are forced against the brake drum, creating friction that slows the wheel and the vehicle.
It's important to note that worn brake shoes can cause the brakes to be less effective, and can lead to increased stopping distance and increased wear on other brake components. It's recommended to have the brake shoes replaced if you notice any signs of wear, such as a screeching or grinding noise, or if the brake pedal feels spongy or low.
It's also important to use the correct type of brake shoes for your vehicle as specified in the vehicle's manual or by the brake shoe manufacturer. When you book online, our system automatically identifies the part required for your vehicle.
