  • 1996 Dana 80 DRW rear brake shoe ???S

    does anyone know the correct placement of of the rear shoes. two have thin lining with 3/4" less material and two have thicker lining with 3/4" more material. my question is, which is the primary or leading shoe and which one is the trailing or secondary shoe. the only info i find says the primary goes toward the front of the truck but no indication of thick, thin, less or more lining issue.
    it is a fixed upper with the wheel cylinder at the top and the adjuster at the floating bottom.
    Thanks, BB

        Yep they are correct dem dodge boys are

        small shoe to the front , bigger to the back . Take your adjusters apart , clean them and load em with antiseeze . If you are real smart you will do one side at a time and then you have something to copy .
