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.

Yep the drums are intercahngeable, but shoes aren't. I upgraded to disc on the front. The better drums were the front compared to the rear. Put the front drums on the rear, ordered front shoes. Couldn't get the drums on with the auto adjusting rear set. Reordered rear shoes, and all went together nicely!

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.
