    These drums stopped the squealing brake noises. Best part is these drums put the brake pedal up higher, which was a real problem, as the brake pedal went almost to the floor before the car would begin to stop. Solved the problems! Great! Very happy!

        Comments about Wearever Brake Drum - Rear:

        It was well worth the trouble to replace the original rear drums after 20 years and 76,600 miles. The rear brakes are working after not working for some time. Worth the trouble to replace your drums when you redo your brakes!

                            These drums stopped the squealing brake noises. Best part is these drums put the brake pedal up higher, which was a real problem, as the brake pedal went almost to the floor before the car would begin to stop. Solved the problems! Great! Very happy!

                                  I would always suggest replacing the drums and shoes together. The shoes take on the ware pattern of the old drums. when you try to use that old ware pattern on the new drums it can cause all kinds of nasty problems (including destroying your new drums)

                                  If the drums are going to be replaced , drilling a 1/2" to 3/4"hole in the face of the drum slightly above the shoulder will gain access to the star wheel. Be cautious not to drill through the axle flange.This should take about three min as apposed to cutting all the way around the thing.This has worked for me many times on various vehicles. Good luck

                                  Shoes wear a groove into the drum, which sometimes prevents pulling the drum off. Some use a drum puller, but this is a crude method which wrecks other parts like springs.

                                  You could use a reciprocating saw to cut around the outer edge of the drum to separate the disk-shaped portion of the drum from the axle.

                                  The ring-shaped part of the drum will still be stuck on the shoes. Now you may be able to loosen the adjusters and get the ring off the shoes. If you can't loosen the shoes, you will also have to saw through the ring in two places. Try not to cut the back plate.

                                  This is a lot of sawing, but cast iron easier to saw than steel, once you get through the outer surface. Use lots of pressure to get through the cast surface initially. Also, have lots of sharp blades. You will probably want a fairly long blade.
