Maintain Your Rear Drum Brakes with Expert Brake Shoe Replacement in Tacoma, WA
At Titus-Will Ford, it’s important to us that everyone behind the wheel of a Ford model is as safe as possible, and we’re here to help with services like rear brake shoe replacement. The brake shoes on vehicles equipped with rear drum brakes won’t need to be replaced as often as front brake pads, but eventually rear brake shoes will wear down and need replacing. This is a job that requires specialized tools and knowledge of drum brakes which is exactly what you’ll find in our service center and the factory-trained technicians who work here. Don’t trust something as important as your brakes to a ransom third part, leave it to the experts at Titus-Will Ford.
Why is Rear Brake Shoe Replacement Important?
Where disc brakes clamp pads onto a rotor connected to the wheel, drum brakes press brake shoes out against a brake drum that’s attached to the rear wheels. This type of rear brake system uses a series of springs and sophisticated adjusters to keep everything working the way it’s intended. Just like brake pads on disc brakes, brake shoes in drum brakes will eventually wear out and need replacing. Failure to do so means grinding metal on metal every time you press the brake pedal which can cause more involved repair work and put you at greater risk on today’s unpredictable roads.
How Often Should You Get Rear Brake Shoe Replacement Service?
The rear brakes on your Ford model, whether they’re disc or drum, aren’t responsible for as much of the stopping power as the front brakes are, but they will wear differently for each driver. If you are concerned that your Ford model isn’t stopping as well as it once did, you hear a grinding or squalling sound when applying the brakes, or it’s just been a long time since your rear drum brakes have been inspected, come see us today at Titus-Will Ford where we’ll happily take care of all your brake shoe replacement and Ford brake system needs.
