you can find the speed sensor above the trans axle.. remove the air cleaner and vacuum connection and some wire connected to the a.cleaner then you can see below above the trans axle.. a speed sensor its only 1 ^_^ you can see it directly
The drum and hub are one assembly on that vehicle so you will need to remove the dust cap in the center of the drum and remove the large axle nut. The drum/hub/bearing assembly will then pull off of the spindle.
If you want to replace the drum you will either have to find one with a bearing already installed, Have your old bearing pressed out of the old drum and pressed into the new drum, or have new bearings pressed into the new drum.
When installing the new drum it is very important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. I can get that spec for you if you need it.
Easiest approach is to change entire axle. Depends on car, but generally remove wheel, remove axle nut, loosen lower ball joint and separate wheel assy from a-frame. In some cases, tie rod end must be taken loose. Wheel bearing assembly must now be pulled out swinging about the strut to allow axel spindle to come out of the bearing. Once axle is out of the bearing, place a drip pan under the trans and pull the axle out of the trans. Reverse procedure to reinstall.
