    The FZJ80 e-brake has a pair of return springs that hold the tops of the shoes to the center post. These springs are identical in shape, but are made from slightly different diameter spring wire. I didn't notice the difference when I removed them, so I didn't note their positions. The heavy one (which has been over painted in yellow) is part number 90507-23014 and the lighter one is 90507-20016. The difference is subtle, but probably important. I'm guessing that the heavy one must attach to the front shoe, but that is only a guess. Can anyone confirm the position of these springs?

    Thanks,

    Sage

    The 90507-23014 is the front spring. ;)
