WHY DO I KEEP BUYING DODGES?!?!?
I'm planning on doing my brakes soon, and was trying to figure what size drums I have short of taking off a drum and measuring it (if I'm that far, I'd rather just have the right shoes nearby) so i was wondering if maybe knowing what axle I have would help me figure it out. Only, the tag on my axle doesnt look like the one in the "7.5/8.8" guide.



versus



Not that it shows much, but the drum lookes like this behind 15"s




So what I'm asking is,

1.) What axle do I have and whats in it?
2.) Does this give me any idea what size drums I have?

Thanks

Ok, thats sorta what i figured, i guessed 7.5 from the bolt pattern on the pumpkin, but the codes seemed different than what the guide shows. I'm guessing the 4.10 was deduced from the "10", but how come the rest looks so different? And is there any other way to tell what size drums I have other than measuring, and if it gets to that, what do I measure, the distance form outside of shoe to outside of shoe?

all you'll need to tell the guy at the parts counter is your truck make and model. they should be able to find what you need on their computer. good luck.
