As jeepers ourselves, we know how thrilling it can be to drive full throttle towards a sharp turn or a drop off only to throw on the brake at the last minute to save ourselves (and our rigs) from an imminent crash. However, as car parts enthusiasts, we also know that such a feat would not be possible without working brake components. If you want to pull off seemingly impossible (and quite possibly reckless) feats in a safe and controlled manner, you need each and every one of your brake components to be in good working order, including the drum brake. If you suspect that your drum brake has gone bad—or if you don't know if you have a drum brake but think it would be nice to invest in one—check out our collection of drum brake parts here at 4 Wheel Parts today.
What is a Drum Brake?
Drum brakes work in much the same way as disc brakes in that shoes press against a spinning drum in order to create friction and pause movement. On most modern cars, the drum brakes are found on the rear wheels while front wheels typically utilize disc brakes. Drum brakes are ideal for 4 x 4 vehicles because they easily incorporate the emergency brake feature, which is what you need if you hope to come to a screeching halt before toppling over the edge of a ridge.
