Well the shop I took it to believe the rear hubs are original from 89. So twenty two years is allot of years on rear hubs.

I have been spraying the bolts that hold the hubs on with PB Blaster for about two weeks now. Have been taking off the drums every Friday and spraying them really good so I don't have much fight. Also I was able to borrow an 18 inch breaker bar from a friend. So that should help to.

Disassemble the brakes one side at a time. That way you have a reference to see where everything goes.

That was part of my plain. I was gonna remove the rear tires one at a time and support the rear end on jack stands.
