Hmm, so they do Alan...didn't notice that the first time I looked...my front ones do look the same as the top set...

Does this suggest the rear ones are slightly different..they do list the front and rears separately.....

Looking at the rears they list, I would suggest that they have got it wrong.

me thinks you will find the bottom set is for the later model CL'S with the handbrake in the rear drums.
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

I have just renewed the brake shoes on my Chief and the fronts are the same as the rear but there is a difference the fronts have more linings on than the rear but the shoes are the same, if this makes sense, springs are the same back and front .
Hope this helps Chris.
