Hi all, interesting to read about a D9 with rear drum brakes. Do any of you know if they are interchangeable with the ghastly disc/drum set-up? Could changing to rear drums be a way of eliminating all the disc/drum handbrake problems? I'm guessing the rear drum is like the one on the 405 - I've owned several 405s and never had any issues with the handbrake. Usual apologies if this has already been discussed elsewhere on the forum. Cheers, Nick
