REAR BRAKE SHOE PLACEMENT

2000 Jeep Wrangler

Brakes problem
2000 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 62000 miles

I bought a set of brake shoes for the rear of my Jeep and I noticed that one shoe is a different color from the other. Does it matter which way the shoes are placed when installing them?

Hope I get this answered before it to late for you. When placing the shoes on the smaller shoe goes to the front. The color should not be an issue. But look closely at the shoe, one of the shoes surfaces will be just slightly smaller (the pad). Ensure it goes to the front or you will get binding. Let me know if this helps thanks Curt
