'03 Rio:
Anyone have any issues with drum hardware kits not fitting? Specifically the shoe rataining pins being too short? I've tried a couple kits and they both have the same problem! The pins are about 1/4" too short and I can't get the retaining springs on them (forcing would break the spring). All the other parts seem fine, just not sure what the deal is with these pins. Reusing the old ones isn't an option as they're rusted bad and the little nubs that hold the spring are almost gone.

I've tried a Carlson kit from Rockauto and a Duralast kit from Autozone, looks like I have to spend the $$ for OEM?

Try napa parts i had the same issue but the pin's were allways to long not to short napa had the correct size if i remember correctly or just take the old one to the part's store and maybe they can match it up. Good luck
