Default Fixed - Grabbing Front brake shoe

On 6-8-2024 I posted a problem I was having titled Front Brake Shoe Grabs.
Thank you for all of the suggestions.

To fix the problem after going through all of the suggestions I ended up installing P/N A-2051-F Brake Floater Kit from Snyder, it replaces P/N A-2051 Wedge Stud. I found the shoes on the passenger side were slightly off center and after installing the new part on both sides the brakes are now working fine with no grabbing when applying the brakes in soft and hard stops. I am able to lock all four wheels on payment with no pull in either direction. Keith

Keith, Excellent work. The pedal should be easier to push. Is it?

Yes I have a nice high/firm pedal and do not need to apply a lot of pressure
