Rear drums
Are you sure you have the correct shoes and drums?
Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Using old drums, new pads. Reordered pads from dealer yesterday. Is there anyother adjustment besides the adjuster at the wheel?
No that is it. Just make sure the shoes are seated into the wheel cylinders fully and not sticking out a bit.
