First, raise the rear end of the car,then, remove the tire. Next, remove the center spindle nut.(this holds the hub on the spindle which inside holds the wheel bearing) After removing center nut, pull the hub off of the spindle.(If hub is stuck, its probably due to years and years of rust, in this case, smack sides of hub all around with a BIG hammer until breaks free). Once the hub is off, you will notice the wheel bearing. Be careful with this! The bearing will need to be re-packed with grease before re-assembly. Remove bearing, and proceed to removing brake shoes inside the drum. There will be a few pins and several springs holding it all together. Turn inside of drums before installing new brake shoes.
