OK....after assembly the drums would not go on..both sides. Adjusters all tPhe way in...installed correctly. So I started measuring...the distance across the top was about 1/16 to big....tried the old drums also...same issue. So I call a friend.. go to Napa and get a new brand and try them...A miracle...the drums fit... apparently the machined areas of the shoe where it fit the pin is too small...the radius is cut too small...making the distance across small... Poor Quality
Also when back to store and looked at another set..looked the same...Store people were not helpful at all...just blamed me for improper assembly... BS ...John J.

Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

Installs just fine, but will not allow drum to slide over them. Spent 2 hours messing with it so I returned them. Went to O'Reilly's, got a set of Brakebest shoes and installed and drums slid over perfectly. Never had an issue with Weare Wearever pads, but their shoes are a no go.

      Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

      After installing the shoes correctly the drum would not fit. Made sure adjuster was run all the way in. The diameter with the shoes installed were 9 1/4" but the drum was 9". Made sure wheel cylinder was all the way in. The internal machine work on the shoes are not cut right for this model. The shoes matched up with the old ones on the lining side, with the exception of the short shoe had about 2" less abrasive lining than the original. That is definitely not good!

                These pieces of junk were awful. After installation the shoes rubbed against the pads constantly. I had to remove everything 3 different times and remove metal so that they would fit correctly. The box and web description says perfect fit. Not they aren't. I guess I got the bad ones off of the assembly line, but no way would I recommend this brand to anyone else. I hope the other brands offered by Advanced Auto are of better quality. I like the chain and expect better quality than what I received.

                  Worked great on my 97 Jeep Wrangler. For years I thought my brakes felt a little weak due to larger tires... realize know the rear drums (shoes) weren't even making proper contact... they were worn way down and the adjuster wheel was way off. The Jeep stops much better and I can feel the rears doing their job now.

                      The shoes would be better suited for the average home mechanic if they were identified as the primary or secondary shoe. Youtube it if you don't know the difference!
