The shoes are known as a leading and trailing shoe. One side
has the lining cut short on the bottom to leave room for the shoe to grab
and force the top into the drum. Since the Vanagon has both the adjuster and
cylinder on top, the bottom of the shoes get little action anyway.
As received from the box, the rear shoe with the lever is installed with the
lever outside or towards the drum. The front shoe also gets the metal
adjuster tab installed out side. The top springs must be installed with the
inner hooks facing up. The adjuster bar has the longer fork prong going into
the shoe slot and the shorter prong towards the drum.
Hope this helps.
