I give the drum brake a one star only because of its which ship. These drums where my 3rd purchase of Brake parts this year. They will be the last drums I ever buy replace other than a manufactures dealer from now too. From the start the brakes made a clicking noise. Car was taken to a dealer, where I was told they were warped. After spending way to many hours and and extra $118.00 they are finally working without the noise.

2004 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner: My stock drums were giving me the shudders, and the consensus was I needed new drums. My shoes still had 75% of their material. I ordered the new drums, arced the shoes a bit, and installed the new drums. Shudder was even WORSE. Took the truck to my local shop. They said the drums were defective/out of round, I bought two new ones from them, and problem was solved. Will be getting a refund. I suggest if you buy these, have them TURNED BEFORE YOU INSTALL THEM.

After installing the new brake pads and drums there was a clicking sound while braking. I had the mechanic put it back on the lift to check. He did not see any issue with the installation. I called Auto anything who called the manufacturer. Manufacturer stated there is probably a rivet in the drums that was causing the noise and it should go away after a few hundred miles. After 500 miles it was still there so They send me new drums but not new brake pads that are damaged by drums.
