What's Lighter? Rear drum or disk-- Fox Body

What rear brakes are lighter on a fox body generally? Rear drum brakes or rear disk brakes?

Disc is lighter and less rotating mass.

X2. I believe stock 10" drum for stock later model Mustang disc brakes; the drum would be lighter & have less rotational mass IMHO...
