you have a full floater? does the axle bolt through the center of the hub and have 8 bolts on the outside flange? if so you have to remove the flanged axle first. then remove the thin snap ring that hold the lock key in place. after the key is out you can spin the nut off ( Use a short pair of needle nose that I remove the spring clip and key with) then once all thats out you can pull the hub and drum together. should take about 2 minutes. and if the shoes are stuck you will need to back off the adjuster.

have you tried backing the self adjuster off? on those trucks even with a FF axle the brake drum is not pressed onto the axle hub. i just did a set on a 94 K2500 last week. some beating and banging should get it off.

I think all 3/4 ton Burbans come with SF rear ends...just have to back off the adjusters and beat it with a hammer.

they make a puller.

puller + impact + heat = success.

not true. all the diesels come with FF axles and i believe it was an option on gassers.
