Question about brakes

Were any 1995 3.9L V-8 D90's made with rear drum brakes? All of them here in the US have 4-wheel disc, but I'm wondering if anywhere else that specific model was available with rear drum brakes.

93 NAS D110 had rear drum brakes on the Salisbury axle. All RR had discs when they were introduced in '87 or '88. So if you wanted to find a 90 with rear drums, you would probably have to look in areas of the world where 90s were first introduced, several years prior to being imported to US market.

Call ECR, Rovers North or Atlantic British, they should know...
Maybe a few of the guys from Europe could chime in? Any ideas?

I'm not looking for rear drum brakes exactly.
I'm trying to find out if 1995 (specifically) D90's with the 3.9L V8 had rear drum brakes in any market. I know all NAS D90's had 4 wheel discs.
I know early years did, but I need to know if 1995's did, in any other market. I don't think they did.

Tom,

Don't know if this helps you or not but all the parts houses go by axle number. So one would think at some point they stopped completly with drums and then started with disks.

Yeah, that's how my parts book lists them. The problem is knowing what year a specific axle number came in to service, thus knowing what year drum brakes went away.
