    Interesting. First time I've heard that. Maybe GM did that to the crew cabs? What is your brake RPO.... JB8 or JB7?

    Is it a full float or semi-float? I can't tell very well from the picture.

    My father's ECSB C2500 has slide off drums, it's a semi float. Or are you saying there were FF with slide off drums?

    That looks like a semi float pumpkin. 14blt FF has a more distinct "Aztec pyramid" popping out of the bottom. Could be wrong though, not the best picture for this.

    My K3500 SRW has 3.5” “slide off” drums. Although I will say the originals were a press fit over the center bore. The replacements I got are a slip fit.

    It is entirely possible that if I cleaned everything up, the originals (they weren’t that rusted) would have slid on, but I can say the clearance was much greater with the replacements I got from NAPA. I scrapped the originals the other day so now the world will never know....

    There are two center bores available. I'm not sure of the applications, but I'd assume one is for front mounting and one for rear. My slide off drums are a tight fit, just not an interference fit....unless rusted. I keep antisieze on them so it's no problem removing them.

    Wouldn’t the front vs rear mounting drums have a different cone, or hat, shape to them?
