    Hi, I rebuilt a 8.2 posi rear for my 70 skylark. its all built and installed out to the backing plates. I need park brake cables, brake shoes, hardware and drums and shes ready to drive. I have been looking for parts but not sure where to buy quality and correct parts. I found this kit on ebay,

    but it looks like a one size fits all kit. I know Buick drums are slightly different than Chevy, I believe Chevy will fit but will it be an issue? where else would you guys suggest I look for these parts? OPGI?

    It look like mine however, compare part# to OPG, Yearone and your local parts store; I brought hardware and drums from advance auto parts and they were spot on, plus no shipping fees.

    The parts inside the drum are the same as Chevelle. Some of the Chevelle axles have a very slight step in the pilot hub,which would require a light honing of the hub bore on the drum. That is your difference.
