About Brake Drums
Drum brakes as a complete or partial braking system are not incredibly common in new vehicles these days but millions of vehicles around the world still exist which use them. They work by having a rotating drum-shaped assembly to which brake shoes are pressed against their inside surface to slow them down. Although often found on the rear of older vehicles as rear braking systems, they are also found as dedicated parking brakes on some vehicles and, as part of the rear disc rotor of a car with rear disc brakes, a drum-style handbrake system.
