While they are not as common as they once were, drum brakes are still used on rear of some passenger vehicles.

Brake drums are a major component in braking system. Brake shoes apply a force against the drum to stop a vehicle.

Over time, like an braking component, things wear out. 

When this happens you can experience several things:

  • Increased pedal travel
  • Increased stopping distance
  • Pulsating brae pedal when apply brakes
  • Metallic scraping of squealing noises  
  • Lower brake pedal

How much will it cost?

The typical cost for the testing and replacement of brake drums is between $170-$320 for parts and labor.

This price range is averaged across all passenger vehicles. The actual cost depends on your specific make, model and year. Depending on your specific vehicle, this cost may be lower or higher. This cost estimate is for the specific repair listed and doesn’t include additional, related items that may require repair.

Here is what is included:

  • Replacement of drums
  • Inspection of related components.
