    Doing my tacoma front brakes today, and need to do my civic's rear rum brakes as well.. Researched a bunch last night, and not sure if the drum are gonna be a pain in the ass. Thinking I may just take it in for the rear.

    Any thoughts?

    If you look on the edge and if they are clean they should be a red painted on marker. Look for it. If it's worn to the red or yellow line it's time to change them out. It will also incorporate a squeaker, some kind of piece of metal that will make contact when they are worn too thin. With the brakes pressed check the clearance of that piece of metal.
