13/16 vs 7/8 wheel cylinders....

For 2000, the automatics had 13/16 and the manuals 7/8.

Later years both had 7/8 (parents 2002 sedan)


For 2000, are the 13/16 and 7/8 easily swappable?


The reason I'm asking is my wagon with the 13/16 has the annoying hum/squeal from the rear but my parents with the 7/8 doesn't.

If I brake a little harder or a little less braking, I can get rid of the squeal; but it seems that the braking I need hits the squeal zone.


So, can I replace the 13/16 with 7/8 wheel cylinders to hopefully avoid the squeal with a little more rear braking.

Locking up wouldn't be a problem as I have ABS.....
