Message:
I am doing a brake job on my 99 3.9, 5sp., 4x4, Ext. Cab Dakota this weekend, and the guy at the parts store asked if I had 9" or 10" drums on the rear. I measured as best I could with the wheel on, and it looks to me like the brake surface is 9 1/2" in diameter. Is there any way to tell the size of the drum without removing it, ie. VIN #?

Call the dealer with the Vin# they can tell you everything.

The measurement is taken from the inside of the drum.
The bigger drums are found on the daks with the heavyer payload option.

Too lazy to pull the drum off? :D It should be stamped on there as well. You7 could buy both and return the wrong ones :)

If you look on the inside/or outside lip of the drum, it should tell you maximum diameter of the drum. The maximum diameter is the point at which the drum can't be machined anymore, and or reused. This size should indicate what size drums you have.

When you call to buy drums - call all the shops.
You have to; they all sell the same chinese crap now and in calling you will get those drums for about $29.00 instead of $74.00. Also, they will tell you that the 3.9 gets the 9 inchers and the V8 gets the 10 inchers. John_v
