Anyone know of any cars with a 9" ford that came with aluminum brake drums? Looking for some to put on the rearend out of a 71 Torino. Thanks in advance.

some fox chassis cars had aluminum drums(not sure of the exact years). they are 4 lug and have an I.D. of 9". they could be re-drilled to 5 lug but i'm not sure that any 9" rearends used 9" drums. 9" rearends use a 10" or larger drum.

That's kinda what I thought too but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks for your help.

We use the alum.drums that come on 78-88 metrics they are 9-1/2"if you go to the junk yard you should be able to find some.
