i did my brakes most of the time it will only need an hour of my time to do both front brakes.....
The front brakes on any vehicle do most of the stopping. When you apply the brakes the weight shifts to the front of the vehicle. For this reason the front brakes are needed more than the rear. Try stopping a vehicle with just the hand brake which applies only the rear brakes.
What size wrench do you need to change the front brakes on a 2001 dodge durango?"
i need a diagram on how rear brakes are assembled
No you don't, the front and rear brakes are independent of one another. -Sean Ford Mechanic Riverside,CA
Rear brakes do not have to be replaced too often. It's really hard to tell without looking at it. What you can do is to replace front brakes and test drive it, if you feel that your car brakes works just fine you do not need to replace rear brake shoes.
The amount varies depending on how much work needed to be done. If you only need to replace the front break pads, it may only cost you $150-170. If you need the front pads and rotor/disks replace, it may cost you from $275-350. The rear break cost a little less than front brakes specially if you have drum brakes. Since you have front wheel drive, often rear brakes are okay and just need cleaning and adjustments.

To remove the Front Fender on the 98 Ford escort you need a tool box. A tool box will enable you open the bolts.
Is it like regular brakes are is there something special tool I need ?
If you don't know how to do the brakes you really need to get an instruction manual from the parts place. Brakes are a safety item and you shouldn't change them unless you are sure of the procedure itself.
first you need to check your brakes 2000 vehicles dont have front drums, they have disk brakes
They need replaced when they wear out.
It depends on model and year of production. If you have front and rear disk brakes, you need 8 pads (4 front and 4 rear): 2 per each wheel. If you have only front disk brakes and rear drum brakes. You will need 4 front pads and 4 rear brake shoes.
No you dont have to. All I did was was pump the brakes with the car running
No. You will only need to replace the brake shoes if they are worn down. Generally the front brakes do 70% of braking leaving the rear with 30%, which will cause the front pads to wear first. What is important however is that you replace either front brakes or rear brakes as a set. i.e. if you're replacing the front brakes do the right and left side.
The front rotors are out of round or warped, Need to have the rotors turned.
It's advisable to replace them instead adjusting, specially for front brakes.
Pads--and if you've got disc brakes on the back of the car, which I think you do, you need pads back there too.
No, the brakes have nothing to do with the drive shaft.
When the "Brakes" light on your dash comes on, or if you hear "metal to metal" scraping from them.
