Good ? for sure far as the cables go if my brakes feels hard to pull I always check the cables to see if thats the problem and the gear cable as well if it does not shift good and I know the adjustment are good then its the cable I just replace them.Now for the brake shoes if they wear down to show no lines on them I would replace them at that time.
My dad always told me a Sledge a matic can fix any thing.
