Need to replace brakes on 2000 GMC Safari. does it have disc brakes all around or drum rakse in rear?


Disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear. Make sure that you repack the front bearing's with wheel grease before finishing the job.If the front rotors and or the rear drums have a rough brake pad surface,get them resurfaced before installing new brake pads or brake shoes in the rear. you can go online or your public library for complete instructions on how to replace the brakes on that vehicle.

Which is the primary shoe


Short shoe on the front long shoe on the back. Drum style brakes are self energizing. When the wheel cylinder pushes the shoes out, the front shoe tries to spin with the drum, which pushes on the adjuster, pressing on the rear shoe. So the rear shoe is pushed into the drum by the wheel cyl, and the front shoe.

What kind of brakes are on this car (front and rear)?


It depends on model. Most cars have disc brakes in front and drum brakes in rear. Some cars have disc brakes front and rear. Look through the front wheels, you will see the front disc, now look at the rear, if it looks like the fronts, you have 4 wheel disc brakes, if you cant see anything behind the wheel, it has rear drum brakes.

What kind of brakes are on the back of the car


Easy way to find out...look at the fronts and then look at the rears. If the rears look like the fronts then you have disc brakes in rear. If not, you have drum brakes.

When the car is cold go to drive off it sounds


As you apply your car brakes, your brake pads/shoes wear against the brake rotors/drums. Rear brakes usually have brake drums. As your brake shoe linings wear (as would be the case for your car), the brake linings from the brake shoes have worn down to metal and they wear into the metal of your brake drums. After you park the car at night, the natural moisture in the air facilitates an oxidation (rusting) process along your brake drums. When you get in your car and take off in the morning, you have a light layer of rust that gets scraped off by your worn brake shoes. This is what is causing that annoying noise you hear in the morning (or after the car has been parked for hours). Simply put, you need a rear brake job. They will also check your front brakes and can let you know how much life you have left up front. If you continue to drive around like this, you'll end up ruining your rear brake drums and this will quickly become more expensive. When you have a rear brake drum job completed, they will likely "turn" your rear brake drums - which means they will put the drums on a mechanical lathe that will scrape any uneven surface into one congruous even surface.

Your 89 Corolla has drum brakes at the rear.
The graciousness of a FIxYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

Did you "scuff" up the front rotors??? Sounds like the may be "glazed". Also if the rear drums did come off that easy I suggest adjusting. You should feel very slight "drag" when you spin rear drum. Good luck
