Rear brakes- Shearing the liner off the shoe

Rear brakes- Shearing the liner off the shoe

Postby TXMike [OP] » January 14th 2016, 7:51pm

I have a 2001 Astro with 300k miles. I recently purchased it for commercial use (newspaper delivery). One evening the passenger rear brake locked up. Upon inspection it had sheared the rivets holding the composite to the steel "shoe". The thickness of the material was comparable to the new parts I replaced it with. (I also replaced the drum.) So I blamed it on defective product. ..... Fast forward , less than 30 days later it has done it again same side -same symptoms. I checked the axle for bearing play and it seems to be within the norm.... Any advice?

What brand brake shoes?

Wagner are the OE type and made a huge difference in mine. Most LAPS carry them but you got to order them. Because they are pushing their brand. And they are alot more expensive. But you get what you pay for especially in this case.
