WEll! let's see. If the brake shoes are worn, you will have to replace them. At the same time, you should have the drums checked and, if necessary, turned by a machine shop. They usually charge around $10 each. The job is fairly straightforward, but you will need a Chilton or Haynes manual to do it. Follow their directions closely. You will want to pick up a couple of tools for the job, like a brake spring tool, and the tool to replace the washers over the little coil springs. Adjust the brakes according to the book. OR, take it to a brake shop and give 'em the $60 to do the job.

04 alero front brakes get hot why?

This could be for a few reasons, but if they are getting hot without you applying them, I would suggest that they are sticking and causing the pads to rub on the discs, or if they are drum brakes, the shoes on the drums. If they are only getting hot as a result of using the brakes, I would suggest checking that the brakes are balanced properly, and that the front brakes are not doing all of the work/ or that the back brakes are working at all.
