Is there any difference between the front and rear brake drums and are they interchangeable
The drums are interchangable from front to rear......However, the brake linings are not....Two inch wide in front; 1 3/4" in the rear....See reference:http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/shop/1955/55csm0526.htmlI could have sworn that they are different but guess what danchuk list them as the same for front or rear heres the link

I have two front drums off a 57 with the tapered bearing conversion here if you want them come and get them. Complete backing plate to drum including shoes which are not very old I dont think.Thank you.
The reason I asked the question is that some of the vendors state either; to suit rear or front.
I have a front drum that adjusts, locks after reversing into the garage, and frees up after driving.
I have a complete rear end I rebuilt for my 57 around 12 years ago with machined rear drums.(now have surface rust). I think that my drum on the car may have a high spot.
