Just finished a late night session with the rear drum brakes on the burb. If you don't think this is a job you can handle. You might consider it next time you hear that grinding noise from the rear. I heard the noise and just assumed it was coming from the front pads. Did the pads on Sunday and the noise was still there. How do you check if it is the rear brakes? While driving hold out the emergency brake release and apply the emergency brake. If you hear the grinding noise it is the rear brakes. If not, the front brakes are the culprit. Since I forgot to use this method, the front pads were changed 10 -15k miles early. Since I had them apart I thought I'd upgrade to the "carbon fibre" pads from AutoZone. I'll post pics of the front and rear brake work later. Beddy bye time for now.
