before they wear down to Metal to Metal contact...the time period varies depending on how fast you stop, and how loaded the vehicle is... also, Everyone should have a manual, and the library should have a professional shop manual available for copies in the reference section (FOR FREE) up and fix 'em like the pro's...! :) Dave

Usually the rear pads or brake shoes depending on whether or not the back brakes are disc or drum brakes will last 2 times longer the the front brakes. 75% of your braking is done by the front brakes. For example, if you have 60,000 miles and your front pads need to be replaced the rear ones will only be about 1/2 worn out.

Do you have to replace the back brake shoes if you change front pads?

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.
