[Healeys] Brake shoe material

Shoes sold now days are all new material.  If the steel shoe is manufactured a bit out of original specs the lining material would have to be adjusted to get the required max diameter to fit in the drum. 
Too large a shoe means thinner lining.  If anyone needs original shoes to reline I have a bunch.

I just received an order from Moss which included front and rear brake shoes because they were on sale and I actually needed them for the restoration.  What puzzles me is the fact the front shoe lining is thinner than the rear shoe lining.  It is actually half as thick!  Am I missing something here?
