Now on to the rear drum brakes. Most drums will have balance weights on them, make sure that they did not fall off. To remove the drum the emergency/parking brake will need to be released. If the drum is stuck it may require some force with a rubber mallet to be removed. It is common for the drum to rust around the axle shaft. Use a rust buster such as WD-40 to help the task. Before reassembly always coat the axle hub where it meets the drum with anti-seize compound.
