In general terms, its fairly easy.
You need to disconnect the pitman arm, the steering coupler to the column, the ps hoses, and unbolt it from the frame.
The tricky part is getting the steering wheel and pitman arm aligned so the steering wheel is centered when you put it back together.
Some are notched so you have to put it back one way, some are not.

Have only 80 per cent on my right rear drum.and have 100%on all the other ones it is a 1972 chevy c10 pu


Either this brake has been dragging, or if it's like my 79 c10, It is the only brake working! First, find a good drum new or used to replace the bad one. Next replace all four wheel cylinders, the brake fluid and any pads or parts that are rusted or wore. Make sure the brakes are bled and then be careful not to hit the steering wheel when you stomp the brakes!!!
