    This listing is for a 30 series rear brake shoe set on a P30 Chevy chassis....I also seem to recall they fit the J30 Jeep chassis too. They are 13" X 2.5" The Gladiator used them too:

    These links are dead. Is there a NAPA part number somewhere?

    Seems NAPA has changed their site and not for the better. It takes a lot longer to find anything and I am not absolutely certain these are the same shoes, as the part numbers are all different, but here is a link:

    The TS320 is the correct measurement. They don't have any listings for the larger Jeeps anymore.

    Thanks for the quick response. The TS TS320 shoes are listed for a 1972 Chevy truck P30 1 ton step van. I think I'll be giving it a try this weekend.

    If brakes shoes were wood, I'd do em. Just a thought, If someone made the jig, and knew how to do it right, would there be enough profit in them to change-up a bunch of them to sell to zoners?

    Several people have made a jig to do the shoe alterations in the past. I just can't remember who.
    Remember if you didn't build it you can't call it yours.

    6.2 powered M715, 5 M1009's, M416, 2 M101's, 2 M105's, 3 M35's, M1007 6.5 turbo Suburban project called Cowdog.

    Honestly, you don't need the jig to do them. I simply marked my new shoes by measuring the originals, then scribed them and cut them with a portable bandsaw at the top. It took all of about 10 minutes total, and they've been in trouble free service for the last 3 years now.

    What springs are being used in these pictures? Those orange springs are not stock. The stock springs do not work with the after market shoes.

    While doing a survey of the needed brake parts for my M715, I found that the front wheel cylinders had leaked a little. I know you may be able to clean them with denatured alcohol but I was not comfortable with that.

    I got rebuilt shoes from A. B. Linn and they are riveted and they look good. But I have not tried to install them yet. It is still cold here!
