Default Rear brake drum replacement?

The drums and shoes are original @ 150k miles. Honda recommended replacing them, claiming at 2mm. Midas recommended re-surfacing (at less cost). How much to re-surface, and are there alteratives to Honda replacement @ $68/ea?

Mine are at 260,000 Km, and I'll bet they are original. That's about 160,000 miles. I wouldn't be surprised if the shoes are original too. I ground the 'lip' off that prevents the drum from slipping off easily. Read through this thread:

When they're easy, you take off the wheel, grip the drum with your finger tips and slide them off. Park brake must be OFF (don't forget that).

Be sure to use the proper lubes and don't replace the shoes (or drums) without measuring. (see the provided link)

was the 2mm measurement by honda a measurement of shoe or drum thickness? are drums commonly cleaned/re-surfaced and reused, and at what point do the have to be replaced? still looking for a low cost for new drums. seem to be more expensive than front rotors (nice brembos for $37/ea delivered). cheapest online seem to be $50/ea, honda at $68/ea.
and, what is included in the honda shoe kit(springs and clips, etc)?

We don't know what year year have, but 150,000 miles in the Northeast must mean those suckers are rusty. just buy new ones. Honda did you well on those rear brakes. My 99 just hit 150,000 miles and they are original as well and appear to be 1/2 worn. I am going to replace them this spring, just because.

Although I only have 55k miels on my 00' They did do well with them. The bias of discs up front, drums in rear with a relatively "light" CR-V makes these things last. I had to replacea wheel cylinder yesterday and I was really surprised at how much material I had on my shoes.

i'm going to have to confirm that they can be re-used, and the cost vs. replacement. if $15/ea, vs. $100-$140/pr, then i'll be in favor of re-use w/new shoes. i have several other expensive needs for this car, and saving $100 here would be helpful. i know that the rears on most cars only do about 10% of active braking (all of the e-brake, though), so it's more important to make the fronts close to 100%.

Brakes are not to be taken lightly it wil save a life. so take into concideration that a fewdollars spent would be best to invest in online oem at around 70 per they are not too expensive today/ I have replaced my fronts and resurfaced the new ones twice the next time will be replacement fora new pair . just my opinion

barnardi or majestic they offer a great price I go more barnardi due to a less er shipping charge no 5.00 additional fedex tack on.
