Drum Brakes

Anyone know of a write up for removing and reinstalling drum brakes. I am going to change out my axle shafts this weekend, but I have never messed with drum brakes before. Kind of sad considering how long I have been owning my TJ

Jeep Rear Drum Brake Remove - Install and Adjust
Good luck with it, I did my drums a couple weeks ago. It's not as hard as you think, just take your time and do one wheel at a time to use the other for visual reference.

I think all you have to remove is the drum and maybe the shoes. Check out stu-olson's website, his site will most likely give you the info your looking for.
