Default What is the Correct size brake shoes

Its been awhile since I put the brakes on and over the winter I'm going to change out the cylinders and will change the shoes. I thought there was a size difference between the front and the rear? What I'm finding is 11" x 2" or a 12.2" x 2"

Can ya'll pitch in with the correct info. I have a '60 1/2 drums all around.

Thanks

This is true all the way to '71 when disc brakes replaced the front drums.
