    Hey,
    I don't believe so but you can change everything from the backing plates out all at once. Just unbolt it from the axle housing flange.

    I'll second changing out the backing plates and everything. not hard to do.

    But the drums should be the same. As long as they were both the same width brake shoes and such...

    Took mine off the ten and they bolted right onto the 12bolt. Haven't actually ran it yet. Oh my twelve was a 77 so I had to move the perches but that's it. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
