brake help on cj5

I have a '77 cj5 renegade, and this certain model was supposed to change to disc brakes in front in '77 but i guess i got a real early on, my question is the parts store is asking what size,

Front
10x1
11x2

Back
10x2
11x2

On the side of the drum, there is numbers saying maximum diameter 11.060 in
on front and back drums

Is the 11x2 the right shoes.
i need to know asap changing brakes tom..
thanks

sounds like you have 11x2 drums front and rear. the max diameter is for when they machine drum when you replace shoes so they don't machine drum too thin. Buy the 11x2 shoes and then just hold them up to the old ones before you take them off. Do one side at a time so that if you forget where some thing went you can always look at the other side to make sure you are right
