I don't see the point of these recommendation by the dealer. You've already established this on your road test and trouble shooting.
I do see the opportunity to check the adjustment of the brakes if you were to jack it up...only need to do one side at a time. The wheels should be free to turn but you should hear the brake shoes contacting the drums.
