Don't even know if I have all the parts or not. My name is Thomas [T.C.] White, topcat1942@att.net.

Are you asking someone to post a diagram of the rear brake system?

Should note which side of car that represents (driver's side).

Make sure the new shoes are correct - the correct secondary ones are very thin, many aftermarket shoes are too thick and will not fit. IMHO you would be much better off converting to read discs. One of the best mods I've made!
