Default Re: 56 Victoria stock rear drums

For what you will pay for those drums you can just about swap to a later and much stronger Explorer 8.8 axle with disc brakes and a locker and stronger 31 spline axles. Maybe some one might know or has tried this,check out the prices on these drums and the shoes I looked up a 1979 LTD with a 302 and found these as dirt cheap deals so could you use these by also using the matching hardware kits and also the self adjuster kits for an additional upgrade ?,drum,1744 Other possibility will the later model backing plates bolt up to the earlier rear end ?
