The brake shoe is a firm plate, typically of steel in the shape of an arc of a cylinder, coated on the external of its curved exterior. It comes with a friction-producing material and is tightened against the inside of a brake drum. It is used to make a braking action. Brake Shoes are an essential component of the braking mechanisms in vehicles. The force on the wheel and axle assembly is applied through the brake shoes.
Experts show that worn shoes can affectedly lessen your braking system’s stopping power. It may also lead to unsafe bigger stopping distances. Ignoring worn shoes can also lead to more expensive repairs, such as grooved brake drums that will also have to be exchanged. Worn rear shoes will also quicken front disc pad wear, causing a little brake pedal and late braking response.
