Which way, again?

Putting my 944T 4-pot Brembos back together,
And I can't remember how they went...

Does the bigger piston lead and the smaller piston trail,
Or the other way around?

Many Thanks

Larger put more pressure on the trailing edge to compensate for for the offgassing of the leading edge, which tends to seperate the pad from rotor on trailing side

and also to help counter the pads' leading edge being 'dragged in' to the rotor
