Hello all,

My car is taurus 2000 SE.

I bought CARLSON H2325 Pro Kit Info
Rear; Sedan; Rear Drum brakes; 225 x 38mm; 599

When I open the package, it shows two set of parts with different color.
Also the break adjuster screws are either left-threaded or right-threaded.

Question> Which set(left-threaded or right-threaded) should go to the passenger side?

Thank you

If not marked with an "R" and an "L", you'll have to check when you remove the drum. R=pass. side. L=driver side. R & L do not denote thread, lol.

As I recall mechanism, the "L" shaped lever pushes upward on the star wheel when the parking brake is applied to adjust the brakes.
The passenger side should use the left hand threaded adjuster, right hand thread on drivers side.

Recheck your logic. See pic, the lever moves down with spring tension to tighten the star wheel. Opposite of loosening with the spoon to get the drums off.

Best look at what is on the car and put left hand back in left hand that comes off the car.
