I could have sworn that Scotty stated in Gorhad's thread that the L is the lead shoe and the T is the trailing shoe. I'd go back and re-read that.

ScottyB "In your picture the shoe marked L is the leading shoe and the T is the trailing shoe. "

What we used to call the leading shoe was the one with the thinner amount of brake material, (facing front,) and the trailing shoe was the one with the most brake material, (in the rear and usually the larger shoe.) I've had my brake drums off on my Precedent but never looked for the L or T or removed the shoes and both shoes looks close to equal in material thickness so I'll leave if for those that have changed them before.

I posted a pic of a brake assembly for a 2005-2006 Precedent to see if it might help that person in the other thread. (I admit that I have never done a brake job on a CC, I've only played with the adjusters and sanded my shoes down.) And this Lead and Trailing brake shoe was still getting to me until I realized one major difference between the way it is with autos and the way it is with CC's. The way it is on a car, the wheel cylinders are at the top of the backing plate. On a CC the actuator is at the bottom. So if we flip the picture around we still have lead in front and trailing in rear. On autos Lead shoes always had less material on them, especially at the top of the shoe, since they were activated with the top of the shoe hitting the spinning drum coming down on that shoe. The same thing happens on a CC but the lead shoe would have to be at the rear since that is where itís being activated into the spinning drum.

So my point of all this... "i not edumacated as they is either!" But I did have coffee this morning!
