Default Re: 2002 L100 rear brake noise - drum recommendation?

Also inspect where they turned the drum to be sure they cut all the way down to the gullet inside the drum; I had one shop ruined a pair of drums by turning them down "only to the end of the shiny part" - EXACT QUOTE!

Then, the edges of the shoes would drag, lifting the shoes off the backing plate & causing a howling noise which could not be resolved without replacing the drums. They suggested I should "grind the edges of the shoes to clear"; I demanded to talk to the Manager & resolved it my own way...

Baby needs NEW SHOES... & DRUMS... & Calipers... & wheel cylinders... EEEEP! When will it STOP? When you replace all those worn out parts, doofus...
