    Shorter from mounting flange to threaded end than disc brake..


    Bearings journals are smaller in diameter also on the drum spindle...


    Bolts that mount the drum brake spindle to the knuckle are a smaller diameter than disc spindles...



    Need some spindles?


    Let me know...I am leaving town....I will leave them out for you...and those skid plates.. :)
