It depends on what you are trying to determine. If you only want to know what size drums are on the vehicle, you should be able to determine that by measuring the drum diameter roughly from outside, across the center, or widest point. I believe, but don't remember for sure, that these vehicles came with either/or 9 or 10 inch drums on them, depending on the brake system installed. However, if you're trying to find out if they are still usuable, i.e. you hear grinding, or think you have damage, you must remove them, then measure the inside diameter with a brake drum micrometer, or any large inside diameter micrometer. The discard, or max diameter spec is stamped on the drum.
