Glad you sent the pics!
Sorta hard to tell. And sorta hard to see what I'm about to suggest
Don't think I'm calling you dumb or stupid
This word is more fitting "Ignorant"--If it applies
I too was once ignorant to stuff like this
Meaning---YOU JUST DON'T KNOW. Yet!
Like I said I cannot tell from the pics---specially just seeing one wheel.
It may be right---I cannot tell----YOU TELL ME. Please!
If you remove both drums in the rear
Observe the shoesTHE LINING!
HERE's THE THING
On one side or the linings shorter than on the other wheel
Longer on opposite wheel!
OR. One side is longer than other side is on the same wheel
Normally brake shoes come with a PRIMARY SHOE (short lining) and a SECONDARY SHOE (long lining). In the box 2 of each
ONE OF EACH GOES ON EACH WHEEL
The PRIMARY (short) ALWAYS GOES TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. NO MATTER IF IT'S FRONT AXLE OR REAR AXLE. THE SECONDARY (long) GOES TO THE REAR
I have 2 Jeeps presently (total of 6) Never anything else, do I want for primary transportation. Never had anything else!
BOTH OF MINE (now) ARE DRUM, ALL THE WAY AROUND
I have seen many people make the same mistake
I CANNOT TELL BY YOUR PICS,
Whether they are in the correct positions?
Fill me in, fellow Jeep Guy!
My 2--"Mr. JEEP" and "WILLY"
