I have 2 98 Explorers and have had to change the parking brake pads in both (they look like and go tegether like the old drum brakes). The first one I did at the same time I changed the rear axel seals so the shoes were a piece of cake (just like changing drum brake shoes) the other explorer I worked around the axel and that was a real pain. Ford sells the brakes and the plate and all the hardware already assembled all you have to do is remove the axel and the cable. I would do it that way if I have to do it again. It may sounds like alot of work but it was easier in the long run. plus the hardware on both was rusted so I replaced it also.

I just had my rear brake shoes replaced 7 months ago and my repair shop says I need e-brake shoes. Is there a difference between rear brake shoes and e-brake shoes on a 1996 Ford Explorer Sport?

I'm assuming your 1996 Sport is like my 1995 Explorer XLT and has disc brakes front and rear that take brake pads . On the inside of the rear brake rotors is a small set of emergency / parking brake shoes . I know this because I had an emergency brake shoe stick on and was causing a vibration and the wheel to get hot so I had the e-brake shoes changed on both sides and everything re-lubricated etc.

If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.
