Large goes twoard front, shorter to rear.

WRONG! the smaller shoe faces toward the front of the van.

if one shoe is shorter then the other, the shorter shoe ALWAYS faces toward the front of the vehicle. this is called servo style brakes, if the the shoes are the same length then it dose not matter witch one faces forward, this is called non-servo style brakes. but in this case GM uses servo style brakes so the smaller shoe faces the front.

Only the rear brakes are drum brakes. The front brakes are disc brakes. To answer your question, twist the end wing nut by your drum brake. It tightens and adjusts how much you have to press on your rear brake lever.

Unless its already too late, the opposite side brakes are almost exactly the same. The only difference is that the front side of one brake is the same as the front side of the opposite brake. That is, front is front, back is back, what you see on the left of one brake set will be on the right of the opposite set.
