I purchased new Centric Drums from Rock Auto. The holes that the splined lug studs go into are too large of a diameter for the lugs to bite into. The width seems the same. The max ID is the same~183mm, The bearings seem to fit. The lugs from the old drum do not bite into the new drum they just slide in and out. The dust cover also does not snug into place it too is loose and slides freely in and out!

Has anyone ever had this problem?

Ideas?

Update:
I eyeballed the Bearings and the Position seems the Same. I need to mice both but I replaced the old drums to drive. Has anyone else had this experience? I have not miced the studs but the stock acorn nuts appear the same. Are the four door metros the same brakes as the 1998 3/5 hatchback? The Dust cover did not fit either. I just high temp painted the suckers too.

I've run into that before. Not just centric and not just these cars either. 4 door rear brakes are bigger.

Both max Dia. are 183mm. Bearings seem to fit? I feel like a crack monkey! I am pissed!

Note: Appx measurements Of new drums-

lug stud hole I.D. ~ 12.5mm

Front (outside of drum) Bearing hole I.D. (where dust cover friction fits) ~33.5/75mm

Just a note. The four door Metro has a di9fferent hub set up than the two door hatchback.

The four door rear drum comes off of a hub (the bearings are in the hub not the drum) without pulling the staked nut and bearing assembly.

The Two door hatch back has the bearings as an integral part of the drum.


I was sold drums for the hub type four door rear brakes... thanks rock auto!

There are 2 different styles of rear studs depending on abs/traction control or not. I have not really looked into the difference but that could be it. I have a Raybestos picture catalog somewhere I will look up the 2 studs and see if that part Is different.

Just checked and that's not it they both have a 12.45mm knurl. But different shoulder length. 14.1mm for with abs and 9.4mm without abs. Now. With that said if they only have a 10.24mm hole they are made for 10mm studs. But you can drill them out like I did with me 91 to install 12mm studs
