Brake shoes are made from heat resistant friction material, bonded or riveted to a metal shoe. These are used only in brake drums. Most modern cars have brake rotors (discs) and pads made of ceramics.
the roder is the part of the car that the brake pads or the brake shoes squeeze to make the car stop :)
Yes, you can take your car to Midas or Car X to have the brake shoes changed in your vehicle. You can also take your car to Goodyear or Firestone and an auto mechanic.
Yes! It could have either disc brake pads or brake shoes in the rear. Look behind or through the wheel to see if the car has brake drums and shoes or brake rotors and calipers with brake pads.

I am not a car professional but I think that installing brake shoes simply means installing brake pads. And brake pads are what helps you slow down and stop while driving.
A car what has front disc and rear drum brakes have front brake pads and rear brake shoes.
brake shoes or pads are worn and need replacing

The car will drive fine but the rear brake shoes may drag on the drum. This will quickly wear out the rear brake shoes, hurt you fuel mileage, and cause a loss of power. Replace the springs.
The parking brake or brake cable can seize, or the shoes can rust to the drum if the car has not moved in a very long time.
To change the brake shoes, remove the tire, rim and axel after you have the car lifted. You can then go on to remove the old brake shoe and replace it with a new one.
I suggest you get a manual on your car from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM or MOTORLIT.COM
