Thanks for using Just Answer, here is some info that should be helpful.
Raise the vehicle so the tire and wheel (1007) are clear of the floor and install safety stands under the axle.
Remove the hub cap (if so equipped), tire and wheel.
Remove the spring retaining nuts and discard. Remove the brake drum.
If the brake drum is rusted to the axle shaft pilot diameter, use coarse sandpaper to remove the rust buildup, then remove the brake drum.
If the brake drum will not come off, perform the following:
Check the surface of the brake drum. If worn, or if brake drum is suspected of having excessive runout, the brake drum should be machined. After machining, check maximum diameter of the brake drum. Brake drum must be replaced if diameter is outside maximum limit. Maximum drum diameter is stamped on the outside of the brake drum.
Counterclockwise,also try prying on opposite sides little by little oneach side of the drum between the drum and the backing plate,and slowly work the drum off a little at a time, careful not to damage the drum when doing so.
Then you will have to soak everything down with penetrating oil and while prying the back side of the drum have an assistant try and rotate the drum as well as hitting the drum with a hammer to try and persuade the drum off. Once removed clean very well with brake clean to remove oily residue from penetrating oil.
