Wheel Bearing Help

I am new to the forums. I have been looking around for a few days and i can find plenty of threads on replacing the wheel bearings on a dana 30 with disk brakes, but i have a 73 cj5 with drums on it. Is there any difference in the way they come apart? If there is a thread that you all know of by all means PM me a link and bring this thread down. Thanks in advance for all the help. Sorry for the noob question this is my first jeep.

It TSM for a 74 but should be the same for a 73. Ain't rocket science!


Paved roads are prime examples of government over spending!
