Re: Cardone Rear Aluminum Drums....
Hey guys, I fortuitously came across this recent thread while researching the possibility of using Cardone 9.5 Rear Aluminum Drums for my 1966 El Camino with a 10-Bolt non-post rear. I believe the stock diameter of my drums is 9". Will the 9.5" drums be a direct replacement for me? Also, it appears that the Cardone units are drilled with a larger opening for the 12-Bolt hub. Will these work with my Elky's 10-Bolt? These units also don't have cutouts for the adjustment spoon. Anyone think that's a major problem? I've really only used that hole for adjusting recently replaced drum brakes. I'd really love to know if these units will be a direct swap, which is my ultimate question here. If not, then it's AC Delco, Bendix, or Raybestos cast iron. Thank you all very much.
