The diameter of the brake drum of the drum brake device is smaller than that of the front disc brake. The drum brake has good self braking effect, and the manufacturing cost is lower than that of the disc brake. Generally speaking, the service life of the drum brake shoe is longer than that of the front disc brake, which is about 60000-100000 km, that is to say, the car needs to be inspected and replaced after driving about 60000 km. We will use a jack to replace the drum brake shoe because the tire needs to be removed. The specific tutorial for replacing the semi truck brake shoe is as follows:
