    yep all done.
    Even though the old shoes had some wear left on them putting new ones on has given me the better brakes feeling.

    Have to adjust the handbrake? Probably easier to do J-turns now, eh?

    No adjustment and yes better back brakes promotes easier j-turns
    P.S. Having a bad wheel speed sensor also eliminates stability/traction control and ABS for a quieter more enjoyable J-turn.

    Awesome. Drum brakes are definitely easy, not as easy as disk. Is there a conversion to disc for a Micra? Thanks for the nut sizing so I can check my tools to make sure I have a 30mm socket. Much obliged.

    Oh - I forgot that the nannies would fight you on that.
