    I've been out of the loop for a while and forgotten some things. Question: was a Duster with a stock 318 ever sold with 9" drum brakes? They were all 10" from the factory right?

    EXCEPT ------ some Mopars from Canada or made for Canada.........
    We have seen occasional 318 cars that came through with 9" Brakes & Drums -- that were NOT conversion cars..... (Rare, though...)
    99.9 % of 6 cylinders got 9" /// 100.0 % of 8 cylinders got 10".....

    That is 99.9 % of what USA equipped "A" Body cars came with from the factory.....
    That is standard .... they did have two different sets of front calipers & pads --- what is termed
    "slider" pads where the pad slides into the caliper -- or -- "pin type" pads where the brake pad
    is held into the caliper with two pins at the top.....
    At this moment in time -- I have N.O.S. ++ Asbestos ++ Brake Pads for both -- and N.O.S. ++ Asbestos ++ Rear Shoes......
    Still today, the only efficient, quality way to stop a vehicle.............. Yours, Craig .......
