Default F-150 new OEM rear brake shoes have different thicknesses

Hello all,
I'm working on an '83 F-150 2WD today and have some NOS OEM E7TZ-2200-C rear shoes, 11" x 2-1/4", to install and one is thicker than the other.
Newbie to this excellent forum and I have a question that I'm sure can be answered here. I'm trying to get a full brake overhaul done today as this is the first clear day I've had in while to work outside so forgive me if I didn't search thoroughly enough.
Old primary (front) shoe has shorter and thicker lining than secondary.
New OEM shoes have same length lining but one is about 1/4" thick and the other about 5/16" thick.
So, which shoe goes where?
Thanks in advance for any knowledge. Trying to get 'er done today!

OK, just talked to a Ford dealer tech with 35 years experience and the thicker secondary shoe goes on the rear of the axle. This was Ford's "better idea" and very confusing to me but that's how they built it to the best of my knowledge.

Thanks, I had a hard time getting to the bottom of this. I had never seen a set of shoes of different thicknesses before now.
Apparently the secondary (rear) shoe takes the most abuse.
