    Need some help. I got the rear parking brake bars for my 1984 Gran Fury. The left side went in no problem. The right side just wouldn't go together. It appears that these have a left side and a right side. My car has 10 inch rear drum brakes the bars were used. Is this correct one for left side and one for right side. If so I will need to find one for the right side.
    Pictures are of left side Thanks

    The 10" drums use the same strut on both sides. The 11" have a left and right.
    The ones in my brakes (10") and on the car for reference if it helps any.

    When I went to put the parking brake bar on the right side the curved end was on the side with the piece that the emergency brake cable mounts to. Tomorrow I'm going to see if it fits properly if the curved end faces up on the right side

    I believe that's the way they go, one curves up and one down, going by memory anyways.

    Got it in. I now have an emergency brake that works. I flipped it over and it fit. So the curved end on the right side faces up. Aspen 500 thank you for those pictures.
