Just wondering what size these are usually & I priced a rear drum for a 73(because that was as far back as the computer they were using went)thinking they might use the same drum, but found them really expensive. What year cars have the same drums as a 68 charger 8 3/4? Thinking if another car fits, it might be a little cheaper price. Any thoughts!
Thanks again

the whole drum system can be swapped complete from any 8 1/4 , 8 3/4 , 9 1/4 or 9 3/4 diff , I think the 7 1/4 works too

That is great news,  Thanks Chryco Psycho . Makes finding them alot easier. I tried getting parts from a well known (around here) junkyard, but they crushed a lot/most of there antiques. Sad, really really sad  icon_smile_sad

The rear brakes on a 68 8-3/4 are 10x2in or 11x2-1/2 on the R/T models.
10x2in drums are easy to find, the larger drums can be hard to get.
