Default Camry 2005 Drum Brakes Question

I have a qustion about brake shoes for rear drum brakes. I have
changed front brake pads after around 90k kilometers (55k miles, this
is fantastic durability!), and wondering if there is any way of
guessing when would be time to take a look at the rear brake shoes.
From my experience the drum brake shoes last much longer than front
brake pads. Is there any audible signal from rear drum brakes when
shoes gets thin, similar to the front brakes? I know that the
easiest way to check would to take a look, but it is cold in this area
now, and I guess this has to be delayed until spring. Any potential
issues with taking the drums off? Thanks in advance.

100000 miles is common or maybe after 2 front sets, thats well after,
so have a warm winter and wait, just my non pro experiance, since
yours last 90k you must brake easy and drive some highway, you might
go 200k, but this number is based on a 91 model. Maybe Toy has tried
to save a buck and sell more pads by making them wear sooner., So I
think your model and year is what you should state.
