Drum brake wheel cylinders...?

Been struggling to find the correct rear drum brake wheel cylinders for my 72 2wd C10 Suburban. I purchased 2 sets from Advance Auto Parts and neither of them fit correctly against the backing plate. Any help appreciated if anyone has used some that fit correctly. Thanks

Why replace them, just rebuild the ones you got.

To be honest, I hadnít really thought of that. I was just more in the frame of mind on purchasing everything new. But Iím running across this problem so rebuilding them seems to be the best option, thank you for bringing that up. Can you suggest a place that sells a quality rebuild kit?

Try your local parts place.
I bought some kits at NAPA and our local speed shop.
Measure the size of the bore. Buy some emery cloth to hand clean the bore with.
