Anyone know if the front brake shoes on a 74 Duster come only in 1 size? I have been told that the fronts are all 10" but the rear could be either 9" or 10". The car has a 225 six in it if that makes any difference.

I don't know for sure in 1974, but in 1972 the standard brakes were 9" drums front and rear for 6 cylinders and 10" drums front and rear for V8. That could have changed by 1974.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I do not have access to the car right now and I was trying to order a set of shoes. Hopefully, someone with a 74 will chime in.

1973-76 Duster and friends with front drum brakes: 10" front and 9" rear; all disc brake cars had 10" drums (allegedly that is, I had a 1974 Dart with 11" rear drums and was aware of 2 others that way, all 4 door sedans with 318 V8's).

Starting 1973, discs were standard on all V8 cars with power assist on the 340-360 models.
