Frank von Rosenstiel and Tom Dienst of Vehicles of Victory should be able to hook you up. I dont believe the front wheel cylinders are available new. there are similar civilian ones, but the angle of the backing plate side of the casting is different. Many send their existing ones in to be sleeved (brass or stainless).

I recently picked up some extra fronts for cores, but haven't done anything except disassemble them.

Are you looking for fronts, rears, or both??

G506 Chev 1-1/2 Ton 4x4 trucks use identical front (1-1/4" bore) and rear (1-1/2" bore) wheel brake cylinders as the WW2 GMC CCKW 2-1/2 Ton 6x6 trucks produced with banjo diffs. On the split diff trucks only the rear cylinders are the same.

What goes for wheel cylinders also goes for brake shoes, mounting spiders, return springs and backing plates. Also hubs and drums except for split diff.

A lot of WW2 era Chev 1-1/2 Ton 4x2 civilian and military trucks including models 4403, 4408 and 4409 also used identical brake components to those mentioned above so they were very common.
