Hi, I recently changed my rear brake shoes and got the drums turned but they are making a thump thump thump sound when I press on the brakes, what could be causing this. 2001 Mazda 626 Lx 2.0L L4


Worn brake hardware, the most common cause is a bad cut on the drums. The shoes might not be riding evenly on the drums or touching rust.

Brake problems


This sounds like a defective drum, see it all the time, also make sure brakes are installed correctly, i had one with the same problem it even made the brake pedal move when braking and it was bad drums, i replaced them three times with the same problem it ended up being a bad batch of drums, i took the best two and used them, i had them recut and problem solved but some were so bad they could not be cut. hope this is helpful, good day.

Make sure its not some other thing such as: loose axle mounts/u-bolts, worn differential internals, bad u-joints, something loose in back like the jack or spare tire, loose gas tank straps. Good luck

THUMPING AND PULSING WHEN BRAKING. WE HAVE CHECKED ALL BRAKES , ROTORS, CALIPERS. WHAT ELSE CAN IT BE. I AM A WOMAN, SO MY EXPLANATION IS THAT IT HAS A BUMPING THUMPING VIBRATION.


on a clear road try gently applying the E brake, see if that produces the feeling, I would say either a rotor is warped (wobbled from side to side due to heat disatortion) or a drum. It is not easy to see these faults, with a wheel off you need to turn the rotor and look for the wobble, it only takes a wobble of 1/16 or 2mm to make the brake pedal pulse. This is a large safety issue as your brakes will be impaired.

1996 buick regal 3.8L. Rear brakes loud thumping


Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.
