Need Help With Brake Shoe Size
Hey guys I am trying to order some new break parts for my car but I am unsure what my brake shoe size would be, and there is tons of options on rockauto.com

I have a 71 coupe 302.

Remove the drum and measure the inner diameter of the drum and the width of the shoe.

yep, thanks i found out i needed a 10X2 shoe.

i just bought me a mustang and i have to replace the brake shoes. so i've measured the diameter (10") and the width of the shoes is (nearly exact) 1 3/4" but the width of the drums is (a little bit more than) 2". is that normal? and if i need a new drum, do i need a 2" or a 1 3/4" drum?


I am sorry for my bad english. I am from Austria, so I speak German much better Tongue
