Best place for 9 inch drums/shoes

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by tokyo, Dec 23, 2007.

  1. Looking around for new shoes and drums for my 9 inch. I wasn't sure if there were any Alliance vendors selling any, but if you know of a good place to get them, please let me know.

    it is a 11 inch drum x 2.25 width brake shoes.

    thanks,

    tok

    This is not what you are looking for, but is related. DCA Fabrication specializes in parts for Street Stock oval type cars, but they make a nice set of racing backing plates to adapt smaller GM 9-1/2" brake drums to the 9" Ford rearend.

    Look here:

    Have you tried to buy them locally? For instance, NAPA, Car Quest, or a small local parts store. Ford 9" stuff is not rare, I've been able to buy all that stuff local.
     
  4. tok, dunno if you have Carquest back therre but thats who I use. I am happy witht he brakes and shoes I got from them for the 54 and the T.

    He tried...but the pimply kid on the counter needed to know if the original car was Air Conditioned or not and Tok didn't answer fast enough.
    The parts computer went into lock-down...

    Game over...:(

    If you know what they came from use rockauto.com, I found the size your talking about for about 16.00 regular, 24.00 professional grade from raybestos, I used a 65 Ford Galaxie 500, with a bigger engine. The thing is there is images so you can compare the image to your actual shoes.
     
  12. hey thanks guys. I will look into some of the places around here. I have gotten the run around on some things, and your comment about the pimply kid is about right. Seems like I can find the shoes pretty easy, but the drums I can't seem to find.

    I would like to get both at the same time, with no hassles.

    ps, sawzall, got the drivers side 95% finished.

  13. speedway sells a complete kit, it seems they all are around the 300 dollar mark, but figure in shipping, then the local parts store price is competitive
    here's another place too http://www.wildhorses4x4.com/04.asp

    from scotland

    all the shops which sell 9" axles sell a drum kit for big bearing axles - here are at least 10 places off the top of my head who would be able to sort it out for you.

    dutchmanms, curries, so-cal, speedway, rockauto, summit racing, jegs, moser engineering, strange, rileyauto, ebay to name but a few
     
  16. i should have put more info in as well...65 merc rear, small bolt pattern.

    I think I may be able to get everything from rock auto as well.

    thanks guys,

    tok
