Default Brake Shoe Issue - maybe screwed up

See attached pic of right side brake system. I just replaced brakes shoes on 2004 Precedent and the brakes will not tighten down (self adjust). Flipper looks like it keeps going over top of ratchet. Did I put the brakes on wrong? 4244 is on the back (left) and 4245 is on the front (right)

Thanks........but...........they are different.
But front and rear shoe are identical to the ones I took off (which were also different)- I just messed up and think that I put them on wrong way round or something.

CC started using one longer shoe in 1995...
Your adjuster arm may be bent if it is not lining up to catch a cog in the star wheel?
Long shoe goes in the rear.
Soometimes some body will jam a screwdriver between the star wheel and the actuator arm so they can back the shoes off, this can bend the arm and leave it misaligned. Hope this helps.

I got it - I just dis-assembled each again and redid this time making sure there the self adjuster would slide.

It worked and the self adjusters cranked down.

Thanks all
