Wow!
No question about how much highway time is on the car.
Looking at the pics, notice the top of the shoes, the very tops, towards the backing plate side, the friction material still has not worn to 'fully seated'
I assume you touched up the adjustment as well but it likely only needed just a few clicks.

This car will go to its grave still wearing those shoes.

My reason for clean and inspect at every tire rotation is primarily to reduce or avoid dust squeal and satisfy myself that the wheel cylinders are dry.
Just good PM since the wheels are off anyway and I am only one bolt away from checking things out.

Your photos also prove a point......drums verses discs.....specifically, lack of corrosion and secondly, how little of the overall braking the rear system is asked to do on a 'daily driver' vehicle based on the minimum wear present.

As always, thanks for sharing.

So true.....the slam on the brakes part.
Can't believe how many folks run up on a red light for fear of someone taking the space in front of them.

Same folks then complain about poor quality brakes needing replacement already.

As a semi-retired wrench, I, and those in my chosen trade wish to thank those drivers in assisting us in making a good living.
My children thank you as well.

Heh, heh,
Rob
