Work Well; Doesn't Include E-Brake Clips

For my 2000 Ford Taurus, I was unsure as to whether I should by P/N 7200 or this kit, P/N 17213. P/N 7200 was roughly $2 more. After looking at the pictures, descriptions, and chatting w/ an AAP rep, I determined that the only difference was silver C washers (17213) and gold C washers (7200). I went with the silver because it was cheaper. Turns out, as some other reviews mention, the C washers (which are the E-Brake clips) are not even included, so it didn't matter.

Otherwise, this kit contains the springs for BOTH sides of the car and they fit well. This was my first time repairing drum brakes and I was happy with this purchase. I did use brake spring pliers and a brake spring tool (for the retention springs), which helped, but probably aren't necessary.

Unlike the others who commented on this product, I was not 100% pleased. The large spring that held the drums together at the bottom of the shoes was slightly different than the stock spring. Being in a tight spot for inserting the end of the spring, this was critical. I thought it might be my technique of inserting the spring, but I was able to insert the old spring with ease; the new one would not go. I had to bend it out to make it work and then noticed the angle was ever so slightly different on the end with the offset hook.
Still, it was a quality spring, just not an easy fit.

Quality parts. I did have to Google a pic to find out how they were supposed to fit. When I took the drum off the car, parts literally fell out. Wish they had a diagram, but great parts.

The quality of parts are average to poor. Always nice to have clean shiny parts but the quality is definitely noticeable. Feel like the will fail over time compared to the original. Used some of the original parts over these new ones.

                A:

                I'd be happy to help you with that! Without the vehicle information I am not able to be too specific as far as the sizes, but Part No. 17213 comes with silver C washers and Part No. 7200 comes with gold C washers. I would need the vehicle information so I could check the application specifics for more information.
