ok, you got a good one on your hands. remove the wheels, spray some oil around where the drum and the hub meet. then you see the 2 little holes on the drum? install 2 12mm metric bolts and tighten them. if there is rust and you have a hard timd tightening the bolts, you must bang the drum with a 2, or 5 pound hammer while turning it round and round. this will break the rust and hopefully loosen the grip from the drum/hub. be careful not to hit the lugs, or you will need to replace them too. so, simply put, tighten the installed 12mm bolts bang tighten bang tighten bang tighten and so on. good luck.

Remove the wneels then the drum retainer that holds the drum on while it is on the assy line. Then pull the drums off. If the shoes have worn into the drums you have to retract the shoes to let the drums come off. If they are sticking on the center, sometimes heat is required to get them loose.

Make sure your parking break is off when you're removing the break drums or they won't come off.
