I've just replaced the rear brake shoes on my Virage and am now having a seniors moment
I'm not sure which is the leading shoe and which is the trailing shoe. The new shoes have about 3/4 of the shoe covered in lining material; one shoe has most of the material at the "top" (wheel cylinder end) and the other has most of the lining at the "bottom" (pivot end).
The length of lining material is the same on all shoes and this is what's confusing me.
The old shoes had more lining material on the leading shoe than the trailing, so was easy to identify.
Now I assumed that the shoe with most material to the top would be the leading shoe, but for the life of me, I can't remember why, or if I am even correct.
