Remove the wheel and brake drum. Make sure you have the car supported on jack stands. Take a big hammer and knock the old ones out. Put the new ones in the freezer overnight to shrink them slightly and make sure you have new lug nuts to go with the new lugs. Buy a few extra nuts. Next morning, using one at time, insert the new lug, put a few large washers on for spacers, then tighten the heck out of it until it's seated. Then go get another one and repeat the process. It takes a while and is a PITA but you can do it yourself. I had to replace every one of mine on my 93 because some punk kid got overzealous at the tire shop when I had the tires rotated and balanced. I don't use that shop anymore.

How do you change the rear pads for your 1994 geo prizm?

Unless you have a GSI prizm I am not sure if they were made after 92 you would have brake shoes on the rear, pads in front.I just replaced rear shoes on a 97 and the 94 is the same car.They are hard to replace if you do it yourself pay close attention to how they look before you remove them, they are tricky. Patience is the key to this job.
