Drum Brake Size?
1997 XJ 4.0L, 8.25 rear, 156k miles. The brake shoes have never been replaced. I'm looking up parts and it seems that 9" and 10" hardware kits kits are offered (Rock-auto).
Which one do I get?
I want to replace the whole drum brake to include the drum, basically freshen everything up. Both rear wheels have been soaked in swamp water many times and sometimes left over night in the hole.
Can I take the wheel off and measure across the drum or would I not be able to get an accurate measurement from that?
Daily driver, so I don't want to take everything apart to measure, then retrieve the parts.
