Just as note, the front brakes are not very servicable once the Drums have been trunned. (if orignal) and even replaceing the shoes, the brake performance is just aweful and Getting replacement drums, we had no luck at all.

The main issue is, the Brake is not a Bendix style, rather the shoes pivot from the bottom, so once the drums are truned, not very much of the shoe can make contact with the drum. Realy goofy setup. If you want to keep and orignal look, find some brake of of a later Dodge D100.

On the most of the 57's we had, some had Dual wheel cylinders on the rear, so the brakes worked rather well. Its been a some time since we had them apart.
