    I have a 1965 valiant with 9" rear drums. I was trying to get the parking brake working. I got new cables but when I went to install them I found out I was missing the strut bars and actuator levers. The problem is I can't seem to find the parts anywhere. Do the 10" parts fit?

    I ended up buying a whole rear end just to get the strut rod for my '68. Tried one off a Dakota with 9" rear drums and it didn't fit.

    I have looked at classic industries, rock Auto, Napa and several other places, none of them have the parts for 9" drums. They have parts for 10" and 11" drums

    There's a junk yard near me with a potload of old A bodies - I can drop by to see if they have the parts. PM if you still need these.
