Is it worth looking for the aluminum brake drums that some GM metrics came with? As luck would have it, I only checked one drum, and now that I'm working on the rear end(7.5 10 bolt)it has one aluminum and one iron drum. I realize that both drums need to match. Should I just go to the local auto parts store and get two new iron ones? or look for the aluminum ones? Will ones from a late model Camaro fit? Thanks...loojack

My experiance with aluminum drums is there great until... If you get hit, even lightly, in the wheel they tend to crack. I would sell the one you have and get 2 for the money, although it wouldn't hurt anything to run one of each.
