I have a 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2.5 L C VIN and need to replace my rear brake shoes. Motorcraft and other on-line sellers list a 9 inch and 10 inch brake shoe size. Other than measuring the diameter of a rear drum, how can I find out which size brake shoes to buy? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
There should be a number on the drum that follows the "Max machine diameter" or something equivalent to that phrase. It should give the number in inches (sometimes in millimeters which you can convert) and if it starts with a 9 or 10, there ya go.
