most likely u would'nt notice the diff.. but the lg one does go to the rear.. as the veh brakes the weight moves forward and the rear shoe take the major force....

It could as the smaller shoe does have less contact area plus a good rebuilder will use different composition friction materials, with softer (lighter color, often) being the shorter (most) times. Change them around to correct - it only takes 5 minutes per side once the drums are off.

If Moser set it up for you make sure you check the shoes on both sides and measure them. It is entirely possible they put the big shoes on one side and the small ones on the other. Their quality control has gone down hill a lot in the last few years. Had them shorten a pair of 9" axles for me and they didn't even send me back my axles and although they were the correct length, one had the large mounting flange and the other had the small flange. I'll never deal with them again.

Top ten reasons racing is better then sex:

1)You're expected to burn rubber, 2) It's OK to be a spectator, 3) There is a pit crew to help you out, 4) The faster you are the better you are, 5) It can last for several hours, 6) It's acceptable to tailgate, 7) You're supposed to finish first, 8) Earplugs are OK to drown out noise, 9) You don't have to kiss the race car, and 10) You get a trophy when your done.

Quality control, operator integrity and customer care have gone the way of the gooney bird. I put two new axles and brake assemblies on my big 5th wheel travel trailer last fall and this is what Dexter Axle sent me. Both sides of one axle, 8 greasy finger prints on each pair of shoes. After a pointed "discussion" they supplied new brake shoes, but no seals or labor:
