Default Re: 1999 SL1 noise after rear drum brake overhaul

To answer my own question for the benefit of others who might find this post - the spring washers go between the rear brake show and the emergency brake lever. Guess when I disassembled the C clips to remove the old shoes from the emergency brake lever, those washers fell out without me noticing them.... and I didn't carefully enough read the Chilton manual - which calls them wave washers.

Also noted that the Autozone Duralast brake shoes were wearing mostly at the ends of the shoes - so replaced them with Raybestos shoes - which seem to more solid and thicker.
