    Your GS should of came with aluminum drums originally. You can use 67-72 drums (Buick only) they are on EBay sometimes. You can find someone here who may want to sell a set. I had.my set relined and they are like new.

    Not sure about that John........I think most GS's came with cast fronts

    I asked about this earlier this year-for 68/69 GS350's were cast and the GS400 were the AL lined is what I understood.
    I'm a fan, have them on my 65 GS and 69GS350 - replaced cast iron.

    Thanks Ted I believe the '69 ones will fit up to '72 A bodies but not 100% sure on that. Just looking at reducing a bit of rotational weight

    Our 68 gs400 came and still has the factory AL drums.

    You can find some for the rear from mid 80s gn and some s-10 trucks
