we are pouring money in the break system on our used chevy colbalt 2008
We have spent over1000 dollars in igniton and break repairs, per the tech there is some
kind of guide in repairing the drums and breaks and how they wear out after 22,000
miles by how often the breaks are used. 3/4 of a inch allowed per breaking?????? Please
explain in layman term, brakes are needed especially in down town driving.
Not sure how far your brake shoes are worn down to. 2-3mm is minimum thickness that is acceptable. 12mm is the thickness of a brand new brake shoe or 3/4" thk. 22K miles is not a lot of miles to be replacing them. 80% of your braking is done with the front brakes. 20% on the rear. The shoes should last a lot longer. I get 80K or more on my cars. You might have had an issue wearing them down prematurely, or you just brake hard.
