Default Her new shoes, and some other parts

Canadian Tire put em on today, I asked them to do the free break inspection, someone has really good eyes, because both of my rear break cylinders were JUST starting to leak, the shoes did not get contaminated...yet...So for anoterh 44 dollars I bought two wheel cylinders and changed them myself today. Pretty easy stuff, I only bled the rear breaks though, I think im going to bleed the fronts, they feel a little bit more spoungy than before.

Looks like your gonna need a new corner marker. Nice tires. Did you need new drums yet? My 94 has 242K on her original rears and needs new ones.

my rear breaks are over 1/2 still for sure, they wear far slower than the fronts.
Im at 104,000 miles.

lookin good i just had new tires put on mine after the new tranny as well. damn low profile tires are expensive. I llove the gold honeycomb with red, reminds me of Aviator'* bonne. Moms car had the brake cylinder thing happen on the passenger side and it was completely dry rotted and leaking bad. someone does have a good eye if they caught it in the beginning stages!!
