Part of our wheel bearing repacking operation is to inspect the brake shoes and the brake drums, to see how much wear is remaining on them, and the wear on the electro magnet that activates them.


Inspecting the brake drum for signs of excessive heating or wear is easy to do at this time.


This is a great time to take a close look at the lug nuts and bolts.


Should any be suspect in any way this is a good time to replace them, rather than beside the freeway on a scalding hot day.
