Rear Brake drum size ?

How do I know if I have 9" or 10" rear drum brakes on my 98 2wd ( 2.5 litre )

Is yours an extended cab?

Should be 9 inch.

Usually only 10 inch standard if its a 4.0, 4x4, or extended cab.

Best bet would be to measure but the two look quite a bit different. 9" ones usually have ribs/fins cast into them and the 10" ones are smoother.

The size (in metric) is stamped on the drum, or just use the pic above. Check your parts at the store, I have bought rebuild kits twice and both times they came with mixed parts for 10" and 9" in the same box.
