Full Floating 9" with DRUM brakes - Vintage Legal

For the past few years we've been thinking how do we take our existing Full Floating housing and add drum brakes to it. This would make it vintage legal and let's face it, those guys put out massive power and need all the safety they can get. Just because they have to use drum brakes doesn't mean they can't have cool stuff also! We are using brand new 11 x 2-1/4" drums and they can be fitted with either Porterfield R4 or R4-S shoes.

Check it out:

We start out with one of our brand new 9" housings with CNC machined snouts. We add a bracket to bolt the drum brake backing plate to:

Next we bolt the heavily modified backing plate to the housing bracket:

Our billet hub with tapered roller bearings goes on next:

Drive plate next. This is what the straight axle meshes with to provide drive:

And finally the drum:

We will have glossy pictures online soon as well as pricing and lots more technical blurb.
