Thanks for the info Lagtdi.
The MOT in Northern Ireland has a computerised rolling road test that tests the brakes on each axle separately.
My reading was 1.48 Kn for the near side and 2.17 Kn for the Off side, a 68% difference for the rear axle.
This was almost exactly the same as the reading on my first main test.
The garage that did the wheel cylinders did not do the shoes as they said they were ok for wear.
It's a good point about them being adjusted up evenly. Is this something that can go out in time? The brakes were fine at the last MOT about 5K ago.
I wonder if they could be contaminated at one side?
I suppose I could get the shoes done, get them adjusted and do the retest and see what happens.
For all the car is worth now, I nearly feel like calling it a day.
Maybe another 50 quid wouldn't hurt.
