    So im thinking of swapping my 5 lug axles to 6 lug and im looking for help on brake drums. I recently put in a 10 bolt rear and kept my backing plates and brakes from my factory 12 bolt. My truck is a big ten with what i believe to be the bigger brakes, anyone know where and what exactly to look for to buy 6 lug drums to fit my brakes?
    Thanks

    Just regular K-10 drums. I believe they were all the same size?
