Default question on 1 ton dodge rear end...

my uncles got a 1 ton frame hes using for a car hauler and the drums are seized and he needs to remove them
i know this isnt super specific but does anyone know if the drums slide off? or does the hub have to come off with it?

If it is old enough that you just have a frame, most likely it is old enough that you will have to remove the hub as well to get the drum off.

remove the axle shafts, then the 2 spindle nuts, then pound the studs out and the drum will fall off

Use a big sledge and pound on the center of the shafts on the diamond shapde dimple, after you take the nuts off. It'll take some doing, but the shafts should pop, then work them out, easily.
