    Your joking right? I saw torn dust boot on the wheel cylinder. Plus I already bought new shoes, hardware, and wheel cylinders for the front drums.

    They didnt look too bad to me either Dylan. All I see is some surface rust....

    The pads still have the numbers on them...

    The primary shoe is more than half worn on this duo servo brake system.

    I've seen worse as well, my rear pads came away from the metal before. I normally replace the entire hardware every 2 brake changes when doing drums.

    If anyone has driven a vehicle with front drum brakes, they leave a lot to be desired in braking ability. I don't blame you for wanting new shoes on those front drums.

    David I may be wrong, but isn't there supposed to be a metal bar (drawn in white) that goes between the red arrows I drew on the pic with flat circular springs (blue on drawing) on each end? I call it a "load spreader".

    Pardon my crude drawing.
