Number one, there are brake shoes on the rear with drums, drum brakes. So also there are 2 different diameter drums on the rear of those cars and you would have had to know which size shoes to get. And there is a long shoe and a short shoe. The long shoe faces the back of the car and the short shoe faces the front of the car. Did you do all this?
