    Anyone know what's the pad thickness on new Brake shoes? Just wondering how worn down mine are. My caliper measured it at .092" thickness on my front brake.

    The repair manual gives a standard value of 3.5mm or 0.1378 in. serviceable limit; replace if under 1.5mm (0.0590in)

    Thanks put-put-put. I pulled the pulled the rear wheel off today and it's worse. I'm wondering about the wear on the drum now...
