How do engines ever go 300,000 miles on Jiffy Lube and Walmart oil changes? How about the guy with the million mile Chevy truck & the one K&N air filter? I'll bet he was wiping all 300 of those oil filters.

Kind of in the same boat, have serviced disk brakes on my Accord a number of times but have never touched the rear drums, and no experience. Bought some parts for the rear drums from rockauto due to wholesale prices already, springs, adjusters, etc.
