    Do the newer brake drums still have the weights them or is that something old school that no longer exists?

    I don't think so. I think alot of it depends on manufacturer too, but I don't think ford does.

    If it can wait a few days, I will pull one at work (if I have one in stock) and see

    No hurry. Someone on a another forum brought that up on using aluminum wheels that hit weights on the drums.
