    If you want to keep your original drum brakes on your favorite truck, we have you covered. The original came with ball-type wheel bearings and if you can find them, they are very expensive. Upgrading to modern tapered bearings is the only way to go. Tapered bearings disperse heat better and can deal with today’s grooved roads and modern wheels and tires much better than the original ball type.
