There is not a worse set of words to say to a friend on the golf course than, "Sorry about your golf cart; I couldn't get my EZGO stopped in time." Never let this be you. Make sure you are keeping up with your regular brake maintenance to avoid an accident like that. Depending on how much you use your cart, you need to service it once or twice a year. Most people think the job is complete once the shoes are replaced, but make sure you get an E-Z-GO OEM Brake Drum with Wheel Lugs. Don't be that person that only goes halfway.If there is no pad left, chances are your E-Z-GO OEM brake drum has started to dis-form. Warping like that happens due to the insane amount of heat created when there is metal on metal while you are trying to stop. Suppose you hear scraping while slowing down; it's too late to save them already. Pick up two stock replacements, E-Z-GO OEM Brake Drum with Wheel Lugs today, and get the passenger and driver sides replaced.
