got mine from rock auto. They are pricey. I found out after I ordered my local napa could get them for $10 more than I paid online.
Be ready for $250+

I will try to look on my NAPA box in the MH the shop was to put into it after buying a set of four.

They are 2"x11" brake shoes (at least on our 1992 chassis). If you will ask for 1980 Chevy 1/2 ton rear brake shoes you should have what you need.

Last fall I posted the specifics in another thread.

Good question.

The answer should be NEVER with Auto Park feature if it is working correctly (locking down tight when shifted into Park. As you noted in the parking brake usage it is NOT a wear point for the brake shoes in normal use.

Being mounted on the tail shaft if the rear transmission seal was to fail they could become oil soaked I guess.

Our chassis being OEM 14,800 pound rated do not require Auto Park feature due to having a parking pawl. When on our trip last fall in the process of getting under the steering wheel I lightly tagged the parking brake pedal but the warning light did not set and I glazed them. It did not hurt the drum however.

If you have trouble finding it check with C.H. Topping in Long Beach I'm betting he can put new material on your old shoes for a fraction of the cost.
