Floating rear drum question
 
Hey Gang!
Need to replace rear drums on my 1966 i6. 9” drums with 1 1/2” pads is what I took off. When I shopping for new drums in my size and I have a choice between “floating” or “R-Line”. Been searching everywhere on the difference but have found nothing. Both are new terms to me. Thanks!

All stock Mustang rear drums are "floating". R-Line is a Raybestos tradename for a particular line of brake drums. I'd stick with a Raybestos or Wagner rear drum although they're ALL cast in China, anyway.
