REAR DRUM BRAKES

1988 Jeep YJ • 6 cylinder 4WD Manual • 154,000 miles

1988 Jeep Wrangler, rear drum brakes, what is the placement of shoes when one lining is longer than the other? Primary and secondary, which one goes toward the front of vehicle?

Short to the front----Long to the rear!

Even if you have drums all the way around. It stays the same for all wheels!

Short is the Primary---Long is the Secondary

Both of mine are all the way around, drum brakes

Anything else, I can assist you with?
