Tools needed to replace front brakes 2002 Ford Focus?
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.
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.
i did my brakes most of the time it will only need an hour of my time to do both front brakes.....
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.

It's advisable to replace them instead adjusting, specially for front brakes.
Not really unless all your brake bads are badly worn down , since abs compensates for the rate of rotation for each wheel so that you brake straight , keeping in mind that the front brakes take the most load and the back brakes take less so you should replace them in sets (front brakes) & (back brakes)
