Many vehicles feature a drum braking system that is found on the rear wheels. They serve the same purpose as disc braking systems - to slow down the vehicle and bring your Toyota to a safe stop. A drum braking system is going to work a bit differently than a disc braking system, even though they have the same goal. While a disc braking system uses calipers to squeeze the pads on your rotors, the brake drums are using wheel cylinders to push against brake shoes inside the brake drums to slow down the wheel. Over time, your brake drums are going to wear out from the amount of heat and friction that is generated during this process. They will need to be replaced at some point. It's important to pay attention to how they are functioning. Something you might notice when your brake drums are failing is an unusual feeling in the brake pedals. There can be vibrations coming from the pedals. Loud scraping noises also might occur. It's important that you invest in OEM brake drums for your vehicle so they'll fit properly.
