Removing the rear brake drums vary little from one vehicle to the next.First,loosen the lugs on the rear wheels,release the hand brake, block the front wheels,jack up the rear and use jackstands.Then remove the rear wheels.Looking at the drum after the wheels have been removed, you will notice two threaded holes one on each side of the axle flange.Give the brake drum a smart rap or two with a plastic mallet or piece of wood and spray the flange w/ WD 40 or brake parts cleaner.Obtain a bolt with the exact size and thread to fit the hole. I found it useful to "borrow" such bolt from around the work area-My favorite is the one fastening a cable or a hoseclamp to the differential.If that don't fit, look around under the hood:there's one there you can use.Thread the bolt into the hole alternating from one hole to the other.The bolt pushes the drum against a flange inside and removes the drum.After work, adjust the star wheel brake adjuster so that the drum turns with hand push with a little drag.
