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.

Do Not Buy, Does Not Fit, Dont waste your time like I did.

Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

Great price, thats about it. These ill fitting shoes wasted my Sunday & no other options on the shelf, I had to leave Jeep XJ apart on stands till I found a better shoe.
The supplied shoe Pin must be 'pressed' in. Well, it don't press, hammer, squeeze, etc. You could drill the hole larger, but you shouldnt have to to make them seat. 10mins with a 3ln sledge & it goes in 1/2 way after nearly bending the metal on the shoe.

OK, now the bad part. No pun intended. You cant slide the drum over the installed shoes.. why?, because the brackets are not made to the correct size. Even with the wheel adjuster/spreader completely collapsed, it's still too wide for the drum to slip on. The bracket metal is simply not machines to the correct size. So, if you want to bust out the grinder & hit all 4 shoes after guesstimating how much to grind off, yeah, it could work then.
Drums are already a PITA job, you shouldnt have to mod the parts to fit. Poor quality, horrible fitment. Will Not Work!
How does a product with a bunch of similar reviews & 1 star ratings continue to be sold & why does the Advance site show like 4 starts until you actually click on written reviews?

Do not purchase this product, as it will not fit a 9" drum.

Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

The length of the actual pad material is much shorter than other pads. The framework of the "webbing" that the adjuster mates to is too long. With the adjuster 100% retracted, it still does not allow the shoe diameter to be reduced enough to slide the drum over the shoes. Terrible product.

Would Not Fit!

Comments about Wearever Brake Shoe Set - Rear:

Just like others have said with these shoes. The drums DO NOT fit over them. I did one side and they BARELY fit and the other just wouldn't go no matter how many times I checked my assembly (which was good by the way). Save yourself some time and please don't buy these brake shoes.

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!
