    Default rear brake question

    replacing the shoes and drums and forgot to leave one assembled for reference, the issue is the top return spring and where to hook it

    this is the leading/trailing version

    actually mines the other kind with just the top horizontal and bottom horizontal springs, i wish it was the "duo-servo"

    the real issue is how the end of the one side of the sprng connects to the shoe since it sticks out about an inch then has a slight curve when the other side has the regular hook end

    i found on a video on youtube where on the shoe the connect but i guess ill have a fresher view on it today

    I know it's too late now but I usually take digital pictures and upload them to my computer before dissassembly. I don't mean to rub it in.
