Rear Drums?

The drums I currently have are in a sad state of RUST and will need to be replaced (along with everything else). I have everything except drums and shoes. Anything you guys recommend? The idea is to keep the car safe without spending a ton of money.

Re: Rear Drums?

If you are looking for just stock replacement, Napa seems to have some pretty good stuff, in terms of durability from what I've used and read about... If you are looking to upgrade then that's a whole different story.

Elaborate on what you are looking for.

Have u cleaned them up, measured wear thickness, they may need a skim.
Just cause they are rusty doesnt mean they are knackered...
Look around a wrecking yard, chances are u will find a good set once cleaned up and skimmed.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: Rear Drums?

Not looking to upgrade at this point. Just trying to drive the blasted car.

I didn't think of the junk yard, good thought. Will check NAPA too.

Re: Rear Drums?

If you want to get moving and don't care about "correct" the Raybestos part numbers for rear drums are 2045 or 2045R ("professional" grade); ACDelco is 18B466. Prices per drum at RockAuto are $22 to $32 each. They are finned, so not correct, but they'll work. You should be able to use those numbers at a local auto parts outlet and get close to the same price.

Most shops around here charge $20 to $40 to cut drums or rotors, so most of them are just scrap.

Re: Rear Drums?

I'd get new drums, wheel cylinders, and a brake spring kit. Replacing the springs is a good idea since the old ones can snap and fall down into the brakes and ruin them.

Re: Rear Drums?

Got everything new but the drums, sitting in a parts bin in the shed.

I didn't start with a numbers/concourse car and my bank account says I can't build one. Right now function and safety are my concerns.

Thanks for the help.
