brake cylinder question

I have a '74 CJ5 with a Chevy 350. The rear axle is a D44, and the front is a D30. My question is how do I go about getting replacement brake cylinders because my fronts are leaking? Its not a stock axle so I am just a lil confused on what to ask for at the parts store.

What is not stock about a D30 in a '74 CJ5?

The stock axles in a '74 CJ5 were D30 front, centered D44 rear, 3.73 gears standard, 4.27 optional. 11" drum brakes on all wheels.

If its a Dana 30 from another vehicle, get the parts for the vehicle the axle was donated from. But like previously stated, CJ5's came with a Dana 30 up front from the factory

Here's the CJ stock front axle breakdown:

Jeep CJs from '46 to about '65 used a closed-knuckle D25 front axle assembly.

Jeep CJs from about '66 through '71 used a closed-knuckle D27 front axle assembly.

Jeep CJs from '72 through '86 used the open-knuckle D30 front axle assembly.

you should see me at a parts store trying to figure out parts for a DJ5B, which 75% of parts clerks say doesn't exist because the computer doesn't list it...
