You don't need the third spring to "makeit work" on the right side. If you have an extra, it's helpful, but it will work as designed w/ 2.

Check out the position of the adjusters in the pics.

Put them in backwards & the adjuster is next to impossible to reach w/ a tool.

OK, so then, why did they put the adjuster slot high on the right & low on the left side???

You're probably right Hobo. Remember the older GM's, I think it might have been the Monte Carlo, that had the e-brake cable going through the backing plate from the primary shoe side?
