        Comments about Wagner ThermoQuiet Organic Brake Shoes - Rear:

        The parking brake arm is permanently riveted to the shoe. This would be a good thing if one had been riveted on the correct side and the design had been closer to the original. As it was, I thought that someone must have switched cheap shoes for the Wagner's that should have been in the box. Up to this point I have been a Wagner fan and use them almost exclusively.

            Comments about Wagner ThermoQuiet Organic Brake Shoes - Rear:

            Manufacturer should have examined the shoes before selling them. The receiving bracket for the parking brake cable should have been tapered (as OEM) to allow the knob at the end of the cable to pass through at the bottom and lock in as the spring pushed the knob to the top (the top of an A shaped bracket). Failure to allow passage of the knob made a simple installation agony (otherwise enclose instructions ). OEM had this taper (A).[...] most certainly a quality issue.

            Don't attempt replacing on 2005 Chevy 1500 if you have never done brakes before. I understand the design principle and it works, 90,000 miles and could have let go if not for e-brake hanging up, but the retainer springs are a brute to install.

                    Yes, even though the two sets will be different material. They should still provide adequate stopping power for your vehicle.
