    53 M38A1 Brakes

    Getting ready to do my brakes and not sure if I will need new drums. Can anyone tell me what the minimum thickness is for the drum?

    .030" is the Max material removal per side, or .060" off the total diameter. I am thinking the M38A1 had 9" brakes so the maximum inside drum dimension is 9.060".

    Welcome offroader53.

    Bmorgil is correct, the M38A1s did have the 9" drums from the factory.
