Rear brake shoes tend to wear most on the front shoe at the adjuster end. If, however, brake adjustment has been neglected they will wear more at the cylinder ends of the shoes. In such cases the visual check of the brake lining material through the inspection hole could be misleading. There may be less material thickness at the other end of the shoe.

If the vehicle is pre August 1970 the rear drum and hub will be in one piece. To get these off the shaft nut must be undone. On later models the drum can be removed separately. Take off the wheel and remove the two socket head cap screws holding the drum to the hub. Back off the brake shoe adjusters and remove the drum.
