This is a general question: New brake rotors and drums are usually delivered with some kind of antirust coating. It can be a thin layer of oil, or some primer type paint. I was told, before installing...


Remove the oil or any other coating on the surface's where the brake shoes or pads make contact. This area should be cleaned before installing brake shoes/pads. As for the sand paper for the surface, it is a good idea to lightly sand the contact surface, but just lightly. What is also important is applying anti squeal to the backside (metal side) of the brake pad before installing, and also apply a small bit of grease where the brake shoe hits the backing plate (high spot on the backing plate, there is most likely four raised areas total for each side) on the rear brake assembly....just a small amount will keep the rears from making noise also.

I changed my rear brake shoes on my 2004 Chevy Colorado about 8 months ago i haven't had any issues with them. But lately when i start up my truck and drive off right when i step on the brakes to come to...


Assuming you have drums in the back,you don't get much in the way of squealing.
I would say the quality of the brake lining is not what you want.
Also you need a clean machined surface on the drums

I would possibly turn the drums, light skim cut,if never done since new
I would use 60 then and 80 grit sand paper on the linings
You need all brakes parts to move correctly,no rust anywhere
and things lubed

Check the parking cables for releasing

If you still have issues,then it is the brake material.

I would only do this work myself
I have never had a brake issues at all, in 47 years
All brake issues are done professionally. Not knocking them,
I just never have issues.

Brake Shoe Self-Over-Tightening?


Type of brake shoes there using, the more metallic compound on the shoe will make them Squeal and just takes time for the brake shoes and drums to wear there self to a point where they will not squeal any more. The high Metallic brake shoes will last longer but make more noise, I did a break up grade on my Jimmy with ceramic brake pads and vented rotors. At first before there were broken in, stopping distance was bad and brakes was loud, but now it's like dropping an anchor LOL. Keep me posted and give it a few miles of stop and go traffic.

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable. Have this...


you mean parking brake cable? loosen parking brake cables put drums on , and adjust shoes till they lightly drag, now apply brakes a few times and check the adjustment again, if all ok, now adjust park brake cables, you want to adjust so park pedal goes 5-8 clicks till the wheels are "locked up" and the wheels spin free with the park brake off

Rear Drum Brake Install


Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the drum retaining nuts, if equipped, and remove the brake drum.
If the drum will not come off, pry the rubber plug from the backing plate. Insert a narrow rod through the hole in the backing plate and disengage the adjusting lever from the adjusting screw. While holding the adjustment lever away from the screw, back off the adjusting screw with a brake adjusting tool. Be careful not damage the notches in the adjusting screw or the self-adjusting mechanism will not function properly.
  1. Inspect the brake drum for scoring and wear. Replace or machine as necessary. If machining, observe the maximum diameter specification.
To install:
  1. If a new drum is being installed, remove the protective coating from the drum using brake cleaner. Sand the drum lightly and wipe with a cloth soaked in denatured alcohol.
  2. Adjust the brake shoes according to the procedure in this Section.
  3. Install the brake drum and the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Lower the vehicle.

The 2 links are diagrams for shoe placement and the automatic brake adjuster.
Be sure to have the drums turned before installing the brake shoes.

Hope this answers your question. Best of luck on your repair.

I have a 2007 focus, and about 20,000 miles the rear drum brakes started squealing. My Ford mechanic said this is common and offered to fix it for about $200. Is there a recall or TSB from Ford Company...


I was once told that the squeeling comes form the edges of the brakle pads vibrating when you stop. To fix it, remove the drum and sand off the edges of the brake pad. If you want to get serious, taper the edges of the pads with a grinder. Some Brake pads and shoes come tapered right out of the box. Be conservative only remove a little bit of material.

The squeal is usually the tell tales that make a noise when the front or rear disk pads are worn to where they need replacing. However, with drum brakes, that is an indication of totally worn out shoes, or a broken part. STOP driving the car, go to a mechanic (or friend) and have them checked.
