Does the larger brake pad go on the rear or the front of the rear brakes of a 2002?

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.

Disc brakes , front and rear ( there are also a small set of brake shoes in the backside of the rear rotors that are used for the parking / emergency brake )

The brake pads may not be adjusted properly. The wrong brake pads will also cause the brakes to drag. The brake pads may be too thick.
