The shoes can be measured, but to get a complete check, you require the wheels off
and the drums removed

Wheels, Axles, out board Brake Drums or Hub Drum assembly...Replace the wheel seal, axle gasket, shoes and spring/roller kit, s-cams usually go a couple brake jobs before needing attention if they are regularly greased...JMO

Some of these responses may not be accurate, based on
my experience with a Freightliner XC chassis.
To lube the S cams, the wheels and drums have
to be pulled.

Meritor manual indicates the roller pins are lubricated when the brakes are disassembled. Only the pins are lubricated, not the roller. Grease on the rollers where they contact the s-cam can cause flat spots. The s-cams are only lubricated at the grease fitting on the shaft, excessive grease can get into the brake drum and shoes.. The non moveable anchor pin at the end of the shoe away from the s-cam is lightly coated with grease.
See pages 41 and 42 here. http://www.winningwithemail.com/cont...images/mm4.pdf

Just remember when smearing grease around on open objects, grease attracts dirt and dust off the road turning into grinding compound.
