    (edit)[found out the although my brand new brake drums have same part number and same boxes etc...one had a 3'' opening and one had a 3.5'' opening, guess i will return it for a correct size one]


    Had a bent RR axle, and just swapped it out for one i found used on here. put it all together and when i went to slide the brake drum on, the raised part at the center on the axle (in the middle of all the lugs) it to big in diamiter for the drum to slide over????

    Is this and axle issue? maybe i didn't really get axles form another blazer or something?

    What should i do? put the bent axle back in and get a correct one? Cut the center part out of the drum?

    The car is a 89 blazer with stock 30spline axles jb5 2 and 3/4 shoes braking system.


    so frustrating because i need the blazer tonight.

    sure it doesn't just need a little persuasion? Its not a press fit over the hub center but its may not be slip and slide either.
