Please email email@example.com a picture of your backing plate and I can ID for sure. But we would just need to swap out your backing plates which we have and can get you everything else. Happy to help.

Questions: Are the liners seperate from the brake shoe and if so how do you attach the liner to the shoe?
Question By: David Rushing on Dec 4 2016 1:20 AM
These are all attached together. They are a complete set of shoes ready for install. Originally they used rivets.

Questions: when i release the break pedal rear wheel of one side still locking up and breaks shoes was not return back,therefore wheel remain jammed why please give the solution of that
Question By: faraz on Aug 24 2013 12:00 AM
You are going to need to take your wheel off and inspect. It is most likely a broken spring or misadjusted ecentric. Sounds like you need a brake job.

Questions: 59 CJ 5 Are front shoes available with a higher coefficient of friction. The 9 x 1 3/4 polish up, and even with both feet on the pedal, it will not stop going downhill. It has new drums. Thanks, Bud

Sounds more like your brake shoe adjusting eccentrics need to be adjusted. Once all the brakes are set up properly and adjusted this shouldnt happen.

Questions: 64 tux park, (CJ 5A?) The O'Riley guy said 10 rear & 9 front. I just bought the jeep & haven't pulled the wheels yet, is this correct?
Question By: Anonymous on Mar 5 2012 12:00 AM
They are wrong. They used the same brakes front and rear on all Jeeps. It is best if you measure to make sure you get the right parts.

Questions: is there ajustment for these shoes
Question By: Anonymous on Oct 17 2011 12:00 AM
Yes these were originally manually adjusting brake backing plates.
Answer By: Willys Tech on Oct 17 2011 12:00 AM
There is an eccentric adjuster with a lock nut around it on the backing plate. You may be used to the star adjuster beneath the rubber plug as used on later years, This is a different set up. Serves the same purpose and is easier to use in my opinion than the star wheel if not rusted. Periodic adjustment is required as they shoes wear unlike the star wheel type that had the auto adjusters, or disc brakes that don't require any adjustment.
