Quick noob question.

Does the 2003 Accord Coupe LX 4 cylinder have rear drum brakes or disk brakes? I already bought a set of HAWK rear brake pads, but I'm confused on whether I would need brake shoe sets. Some websites are confusing me...hope I didn't buy the wrong thing.


here's what I bought.

Thanks


edit - thought of some more questions :D

1. It is my understanding that for the rear calipers, I need to turn the pistons instead of compressing it with a c-clamp. Do I need a special tool for this or can I just do it with a Phillips or something? This DIY video shows some kind of a special tool....

2. Can I just pick up any anti squeal compound to place between the shim and the pad from a local auto store?


Thanks again

Is it harder to install brake shoe sets for drum brakes? I think I could change the pads but not sure about these drum brakes...Damn I have to exchange or return these now.
