    I need to replace my rear drums on my 72 K5. I went to the local Napa and Carquest and both said $113 a piece. Is this right???? They are a 6 lug 11" x 2" Brake Drum. Can another year be used? If so what other years fit? Or is off to the junk yard to find ones that can be turned?

    Thanks

    That's right - time to convert to 3/4 ton with rear discs!

    I have a pair of rear axle stock drums off a '72 Blazer with less than 100 miles on them that I'll sell you for $80 shipped to you.

    darn good deal there. I had no idea they were that expensive. Kind of makes me wish I did not use all they extras I had for riffle range targets now. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Dennis-

    Sent you a pm

    You can see a picture of one of the drums (sort of) here...

    - they are rusty because they've been sitting out in the weather since December.

    Ryan-

    I wouldn't have sold these drums to you anyway - I don't consort with people on the "West" side of the river! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
