Quick Drum Brake Question


Recommended Posts

Hey guys quick question,


I have an 05 silverado SS and yesterday I pulled the rear drum brakes apart to replace the shoes. My question is... On the brake self adjuster assembly, you have the end that has the adjuster gear closest to it, and on the other end ( the fork end that goes on the rear shoe) it has a long tooth and a short one, which side does the long tooth go on? the outer side towards the drum, or the inner side closer to the differential. When I took it apart it had the shorter side on the drum side and the long side towards the differential but for some reason I dont think this is correct because the self adjuster never seemed to work correctly, and I know that they have been done a few times since the truck was new. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
