Reproduction of the GM ALUMINUM BRAKE DRUMS - 10-BOLT and 12-BOLT

After a year in the making we now have the new reproduction aluminum brake drums in stock. We worked with A1 Cardone to make this project possible.

We offer two versions - One for the 10-bolt GM rears 4-3/4 bolt pattern. This size would be the most popular drum. The other version has the enlarged center hole so it will fit the GM 12-bolt rears.

NOTE - GM never made aluminum drums for their 12-bolt rears. Part #7717 were made special to accommodate the 12-bolt axles.

Here are photos of this new drum. I also show photos of an original GM aluminum used brake drum currently on our personal 1987 Buick Turbo-T Regal.

A steel brake drum weighs 15 lbs 10 ounces. This reproduction aluminum drum weighs 10 lbs 2 ounces.

The quality is excellent. The reproduction is an exact match to the original GM drum. Drums are dynamic balanced.

Our company was very instrumental in having this project done. We supplied the idea and the actual sample that A1 Cardone used for the project. To my knowledge, no other company has had these aluminum drums reproduced. The benefits of aluminum drums needs no real explanation. They are lighter, dissipate heater better, and of course not subject to rust. They came on a variety of A-body, G-body, and F-body cars in the 1970s and 1980s. GM has not had them available for over 15-20 years.

Aluminum brake drums came as standard equipment on every GNX and every Turbo Regal that had a non-posi rear unit. Our part #7716 is correct for 1984-1987 Buick Turbo Regals.
