Re: Overheating brakes

As you only made reference to brake pads in your first post and did not include rear shoes it would seem most people assumed you had rear discs.

If it has rear drums then no special tools are necessary but I would suggest you check the rear brakes first as they are prone to seizing and leaking slave cylinders. If they are faulty then the fornt discs may be doing all the work - hence the brake fade.
