That's what I'm guessing. We started out with small mice and made our way to full size rats when we had our Ball Python.

Goggled the number. Maybe they are catching the mice and selling rather than killing?
Maybe 25% off to kill them?

I only had one lining between the 2 rear wheels…and that one was barely hanging on. I’m guessing they fell off (cheap glue) and the mechanic just pitched them and put the drum back on. The reason they don’t want to repair them is because the top spring is a real PITA to get out and put back in. I bought a cheap pair of needle nose vice grips and ground them down even thinner in order to grab the spring. Only busted my elbow once in the wheel well when the vice grips slipped off.
Parking brake works great and I put the pads on the CORRECT side so now the calipers slide on and off.
