I've heard a number of different stories from wrong shoes in the right box,
to front & rear shoes being the same, to friction surface separating from
shoe. Obviously, this is all a matter of opinion, but I like not having my
brakes fade when I'm driving through the torrential downpours (typical in
Hampton Roads, except this year).
