    short shoe towards the front, long shoe towards the back. Pretty certain thats the way it should be.

    Look at the other side. I never disassemble both sides of a drum brake system at the same time. One at a time, that way you can use the other for reference while puting one back together. Way better than any shop manual can ever be.
