For repairs to daily drivers that don't ride the brakes these standard Shoes do the trick. Lets be honest nobody wants to do Drum Brake Shoe work. Its annoying and springs popping on and off can be frustrating. The only thing I didn't care for was that the Pins for the self adjust were not pre-installed. I somewhat was use to these already being in. It only took a hammer to tap them in but its just something that one day will be missing in the box and a struggle to get another set. STill A+

Attempted to use product stated to fit my '98 Ford Ranger - it doesn't fit. It does not come with a brake adjuster pin on the secondary pad. OEM brake shoe has riveted pin for brake adjuster lever - it is not removable. Wasted an afternoon removing shoes and returning them for refund. Bought Wagners at over twice the price and they come with riveted (OEM style) brake adjustment lever pin as expected. Wagners worked wonderful - Wearevers left me at the curb and wasted my time by not fitting vehicle as stated.

            2003 Ford Ranger- Just installed these and it was pretty easy. Only difficulty is getting C clip off parking brake and then reinstalling it with new brake shoe. Other than that, pretty simple. Do yourself a favor and buy the Hardware kit and a brake spring tool to help with removing and installing the springs.

                    A:

                    Hi Kc, glad to help you! Instructions Measuring Shoe Lining Thickness: Clean all the rivets on riveted brake shoes prior to measurement. Much of the friction material that wears away can become trapped and pressed inside the rivets. Use a small straightedge screwdriver to cleans the rivets out thoroughly. Use a tire tread depth gauge. Insert it into each rivet. There can be more than eight rivets on a brake shoe. Measure each by placing the flat base of the tire tread depth gauge onto the brake lining and then pushing down on the sliding ruler. Compare the measurements of each rivet in 1/32 inches to determine even or uneven brake shoe wear. For bonded shoe measurements, use a brake lining gauge. Bonded shoes do not employ rivets; they are glued to the shoe plates. This style of shoe has to be measured from the edges of the brake shoe lining. Take several measurements along the edge of the shoe to compare even or uneven wear. Since there are a few different brake lining gauges, each may employ slightly different procedures. Some use a scissor motion to pinch the actual lining in the end of the tool and compare the measurement on the opposite, wider end. Other gauges simply have a preset thickness and offer different sizes on the same tool. Brake Shoe Adjustment Measurement: Use a Vernier caliper tool to measure the inside diameter of the brake drum being placed onto the rear brake shoes. The caliper tool employs two sides: one for the interior diameter measurement, the other for the exterior diameter measurement. Use the internal measuring side to measure the inside diameter of the drum, then record the measurement. Manually adjust the opposite exterior diameter side of the caliper and reduce the measurement by 0.024 inches. Place the exterior ends onto the brake shoe width and manipulate the self-adjuster mechanism on the brakes until the shoes hit each side of the caliper evenly. Be sure to place the caliper ends on the parts of the curved shoes that protrude outward the most. This will allow easy drum installation on the shoes.
