At less than 59,000 miles, the factory shoe rivets had dug into the factory drums to the point where the drums had to be replaced. The rivets were holding the drums tight and the adjuster had to be used to finally release them. Yet the shoes did not start making noise until last week.

I hope this is the last vehicle I ever own with drum brakes. Disc brakes are so much better, easier to work on, and easier to inspect.

Thanks for everyone's help. New Wagner ThermoQuiet shoes and new Wearever drums are now on my rear axle. That should fix this issue....
