Reduced brake response. Another symptom of bad or failing brake shoes is reduced brake response. If the brake shoes become excessively worn or overheated, their capacity to slow the vehicle may be reduced. This may result in a vehicle that takes longer to stop when the brakes are applied, especially during high speed or heavy braking situations
Once you've located the brake pad, try to get a gauge for how thick the pad is. If you can clearly tell that there is over 1/4 of an inch left on the pad, the brake pads are likely fine. If the pad is clearly under ¼ of an inch, it's likely time for brake service and you should make an appointment with a mechanic soon The assumption is if you buy heavy duty brakes then you do heavy duty braking (either racing or you live in an extremely hilly area), so you have more heat to dissipate. The only thing a larger pad would do is wear a little bit slower. Unless your rear pads are wearing out before your fronts, the pads are correctly sized .Clips List $83.82. 2.
