Drum Brakes DIY.

So I went to see how much they would charge me to get my rear drum brakes serviced, the guy wanted to charge me 85 plus the parts I told him to F*** off. I simply just wanted to know what I needed from an autozone or something to complete the job myself. Thank for any help.

Assuming you still have rear drum brakes...Basic would be new brake pads and possibly have the drums turned if needed, and from there possibly new wheel cylinders and brake fluid.

The internal part very seldom fail but there is a that possibility you might need something.

$85 plus parts is beyond reasonable.

85 For the labor he said it would end up being about 180 around there. I know if I i do it myself I'm not gonna be spending that much.

Of course it is cheaper without labor costs. But your "**** off" suggests you thought his price was high, to which I replied that it wasn't at all.

Things like the wheel cylinder, parking brake cables, parking brake link and spring, primary and secondary shoes springs, shoe hold down springs, cable hooks those are things that might also need to added to do the rear drum brakes.

I just changed my springs, wheel cylinders, auto-adjuster kit, brake shoes for around 120$, but I would have paid 85 more to skip this job
