Cheers iNath,

Is there anything in the drum help the car brake or not?

Cheers

Yes, brake shoes that push against the drum to slow the car down and hold the car stationary when the hand brake is applied

Id say normally around 30-40,000 miles they dont wear that much tbh as its 70/30 braking so the fronts do all the work really, my car has done 38,000 and the rear shoes in the drums are still in good condition

You get that with new pads and discs until the pads are worn in 100miles should be enough with general braking, also the outside of the pads should have had a little copper slip applied to them to top them being squeaky (on the outer side not the acc pad)

If you still think its the shoes jack the rears up take the wheels of and the drum lid comes of with two bolts and you can see the shoes and how much meat they have left and if there is more than around 4-6mm id say your fine m8 and make sure its got even wear too, and no major dents or marks on the inner lip on the lid then its fine

How have you been braking? Whilst bedding in its best to brake carefully or you may end up with uneven wear or warped discs.
