If you look at the pivot point on the shoes you can see the shoes don't travel straight out, they travel at a 45 degree angle, so they will always wear differently than a lighter car/truck system that pivots on the lower adjuster. Even if the shoes fit the drum perfectly when new, they will still have an uneven wear pattern with dual cylinders and angled pivot points.
