Rear Brake Shoe Brands


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


After upgrading my studs to 7/16"  on my Mk1 GT6, I noticed my REAR Brake shoes will need replacing at some point in 2015. I have been looking to find Riveted ones but to no avail. Looking on that well known shopping site I found various makes of bonded ones including Veco and Delphi. 


Can anyone recommend these makes? or advise on where to get some good quality rear shoes? 


Thanks in Advance

Don't bother. The last car I worked on and failed on handbrake had a "new" kit fitted. The hold down springs were too soft, let the shoes move about too much. Just re-use the old ones.


But, well worth stripping the backplate, cleaning everything up, smear of copper grease on the contact areas etc. And get the adjuster off, strip/clean and re-grease. Makes adjustment so easy. I tend to push a bit of rubber hose over the adjuster too, after smearing with grease, to help stop the elements getting into the thread.Probably does nothing, but cut square it looks pretty watertight.
