- Inspect the shoes for proper thickness. The lining should be at least 1 / 32 inch (0.8 mm) above the rivet head for riveted brakes and 1 / 16 inch (1.6 mm) above the mounting surface for bonded brake linings.
Your state inspection brake lining thickness minimum specification may be different, and should be observed if thicker than these specifications.
- Inspect the linings for even wear, cracking and scoring. Replace as necessary.
