In both cases, turning these brand new drums fixed the problem, but WTF!
but was it the way they where made, OR they way they get man handled by everyone from factory to store level..
we sent back about 15 because the pallet had them standing up.. and about 1500 lb of rotors on top.. not really made for that type of thing..
