Brake drums can be hard to remove. First, make sure you have your brake shoes adjusted all the way in. If you have a pneumatic hammer, use it between the studs until it loosens, then pull and tap on the side of the drum to get it the rest of the way. If you don't have one, use a big hammer and whack it between the studs, being very careful to not hit the studs.

With all drums make sure the shoes are backed off. A hammer may need to be used to tap the drum free if heavy rust is preventing ease of removal.

  • NOTE: On some drums, there may be retaining screws to remove before you can pull it.

>> 2500 - 3500 Series: If you have a full-floating rear axle (such as on a GM 14-bolt rear) You will need to pull the axle shafts, remove a retaining clip (some use metal tabs you bend out of the way), and lockring keeper. To remove the lockring you should use a special 6-pronged socket to remove the lockring (you'll need one to properly torque it during reassembly). Carefully pull the drum off. Reassembly will require a new bearing seal,and hub gasket, and gear oil.

Torque numbers can be found in automotive repair manuals found in your local autoparts store.

Remove the tires and wheels. Remove the brake pads and hardware. The brake drums will slide off. Reverse the process to install the new brake drums.

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.

yes they will. in addition to the larger 10 inch drums (should have cooling fins on the exterior of the drums) you will need a set of 10 inch brake shoes.

If you're talking about the brake drums, (which need to be removed to inspect or replace the brake shoes inside), they just slide off. First, remove the wheel. Next, wiggle and pull the brake drum (the dinner-plate sized cast-iron bowl-shaped cover) with both hands until it slides off the lugnut studs. Now you can inspect the brake parts.

Begin by removing the tire and wheel from your 1997 Toyota. Remove the brake spring and the brake caliper. The brake pads will come off. Reverse the process to install your new brake pads.

Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers, and remove the brake pads. Next, put in new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/calipers, replace the tire and lower the car to the ground.

Hey Michael==TAke the wheels off and pull the drums off. If they are rusted on, some WD40 and a hammer are helpful. If the shoes have worn groves in the drums and that is what is holding them, you have to turn the adjusters backwards to back off the shoes. Sometimees it is necessary to just pry the drums off and put new springs on when you reinstall them.{But you have ot know how the springs are positioned.You may need a shop manual available at the parts store} GoodluckJoe
