there are 4 bolts that bolt from the end of the axle tube right into the brake drum, and the brake line going into the drum as well.

its actually quite easy.

1. jack up the rear end with a floor jack on the pumkin. (make sure you have the front wheels chaulked.) AND DONT FORGET TO USE JACKSTANDS!!!

2. obviously u take the tires off

3. drain the axle of diff oil

4. disconnect the brakelines going to the drums. (you can plug the lines with something so all the brake fluid dosent come out and get all over the place)

5. disconnect the e-brake cable

6. there are 4 bolts on the inside of the drums that u must remove. i think they are 12mm but not completley sure.

7. after those are out pull on the drum and the axle shaft should come out. be carefull not to damage the seals as u are pulling the shafts out...or putting them back in for that matter.




there is a write-up that i found somewhere that i will post a link for when i find it.
