    Drums....

    Take a look back there. If you see a rusted looking bowl shaped thing - it's drums. That's what they came with from the factory.

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Toyota drums on the 1st gens were about 11" in diameter.

    Ok it was the 11". But when I looked at the brakes they were glazed so I took some sandpaper and sanded until I could see the metalic and then sanded inside the drum. That was a easy fix and I had 3/4 pad left. Also tighten up the emergcybrake while I was in there. Hope this helps.
