Rear Drum Brake Size for a 98?

Hey all.
I am trying to find out some info before I order a whole new set of rotors pads, rear drums and and spring kit for my truck before I get her ripped apart and find out I have the wrong dang parts :D

I have a 98 2 Wheel Drive 3L V6 with two wheel ABS. Suspension is coil (if that makes a difference.
My front rotors I measured at 10". sourced those parts fast and cheap.
However I did not venture far enough to take off the rear drum cover to measure the inside diameter as there will be heat, hammers and (god willing fingers crossed) hope I don't have to dremel the pins to get the spring locks off by the looks of her.

Would it be a safe bet to assume that the rear drum size would also be a 10" brake size? Can anyone confirm this for me before I have to rip it apart, measure it and then run to the store and hope they have the parts in stock.

just go out with a tape measure and get a rough measurement of the back plate. Youll be able to figure it out from there.
