You will need special tools for this task, a wheel cylinder clamp and a brake spring removal tool along with your regular tool kit. Also a brake adjusting tool and large locking pliers would be helpful as well. If you're replacing brake shoes or linings, always replace in pairs, left and right, or all fours. Never replace just one, or on one side cause you'll end up making a very sharp turn towards the stronger brake side every time you hit the brakes and perhaps even flipping over during such a braking induced turn. Lift Jeep Turn Adjustor screw's wheel and retract brake shoes Remove wheels and brake drums Use wheel cylinder clamps to retain wheels cylinder pistons in place Remove return springs with removal tool. Take off, in the following order: adjuster cable, cable guide, adjustor lever, adjuster springs, Hold-Down washers and springs and then the brake shoes. I suggest you get a aftermarket repair manual as it has a few diagrams that will make complex text instructions easy to understand. (posted by "MelancholyMutt")

A 1994 Wrangler is fuel injected, not carbureted.

Begin by removing the break assembly from your 1994 Mercury. Tap on the rear brake drums with a hammer or mallet. The brake drums will become loose and will simply slide off.

In the fuse box under the driver side dash above the e-brake pedal.
