Good thinking Rob - now your awake. Take one side off first and draw a simple diagram of what you see - measure the width and length of the shoes and also the diameter of the brake drum (measure in millimetres). Or take a pic if you've got a digital camera. With that info., your local friendly motor factors should be able to sort you out. I don't recommend you buy on-line as if they send the wrong ones you are likely to incur any extra postage (that's apart from the hassle). As a matter of interest whats wrong with the old ones. After removing the drum and before removing the shoes check if the cylinders are leaking. Pull back the rubber boot on each end of the cylinder and have a look inside - if its wet with brake fluid or badly rusted - you'll need to replace them. In order to maintain good braking and the correct brake balance it is essential that what ever you do to one side you do to the other. Good Luck:)
