Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

Most car post 1990 production, have a warning device, that will warn the driver, just prior to the front brake pads being completely worn out. The Mitsubishi Lancer is no exception. This warning device may not be included with non O.E.M brake pads. This may sound expensive, but the SAFE solution, would be to replace the front brake pads and brake rotors, with genuine Mitsubishi O.E.M. parts. Again, this may sound expensive, but can you put a price on safety?

Brake shoe wear

Just a hair before the rivets. It is very hard to give you a depth chart since you would have had to have measured the pads before they were put on. Usually you change the rear pads after every two front pad changes. Remember you only use about 15 to 20% of your rear brakes so they take alot longer to go out on you

2005 Pontiac Aztek Parking Brake

The E-brake just needs adjusted up on the pads or rear shoes. If shoes on the rear instead of pads, it will hold from rolling back but not forward if not getting full pressure from the brake shoes needing adjusted up closer to the drum. It will hold from back roll because of shoe design. More shoe surface on the rear shoe than on the front shoe. That's the way they're built.
