The primary brake shoe is usually the brake shoe on the side towards the front of the vehicle. This is the brake shoe that carries most of the braking load. Because of this, the primary brake shoes on some vehicle applications have the thicker lining than the rear shoe. That would make the shoe on the rear side of the vehicle the trailing, or SECONDARY brake shoe.
