Rear Brake Help

1404 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  REDDOG
I bought a '98 450S and the rear brakes were not working so I cleaned out the drum and replaced the rear brake shoes. I never got a chance to use the rear brakes before I replaced them and now that I finally got to use them I am not impressed with the braking power. I have HL front disc brakes so I do not have a good comparison. Can someone tell me how well their rear brakes work; are you able to lock up the rear wheels?

Thanks for the help in advance...

The Honda rear drum was never a great brake system...I don't think I can lock up the rear wheels unless I really stand on the foot brake with both feet
Go to talk to Mudcat I think he has it on his wifes foreman.
