<VV> Brake drum balancing

OK, the drums do not need "turning", as that is to cure pedal pulsation 
or other issues when the brake pedal is depressed.

They might need balancing, to make them rotate properly, as maybe a 
weight fell off? Do you know anyone who does balancing, like in 
flywheels, pressure plates and crankshafts? That is the specialist you 
would need to fix an out of balance drum. No turning of the friction 
surface will help.

I have not seen an "on the car balancer" in 30+ years. But that would 
help find the issue.

Steering box adjusted properly. It was suggested that I have the front brake drums trimmed to true and balanced. Any prior experience with this?………………Thanking you in advance, Gregg Wellner
