You should be able to just slack the brakes off and pull the drum. They aren't heavy.

If you have drums on the rer yes you do have to remove the axle its simple though you unbolt the 6-8 bolts on the end of the axle then it just simply slides out thats it there mite be some resistance but there isnt anything else holding it in. and you dont have to worry about putting it back into the same spot eather just slide it back in and line up the drum.

How do you remove the drums from a 1999 ford 350 dually ? Brakes have been removed but not sure how to get the drums off. They are probably rusted or are pressed on according to les schwab?

Well the first thing is to make sure the parking brake is off and that the front wheels are chocked (unless all wheels are off the ground). If the parking brake is on you will have a difficult time getting the drums off (if at all). Now, they could be rusted on but there should be two holes near about 1/4 inch in diameter about an inch from the edge, those are for you to screw bolts in to push the drum off. Find some suitable bolts at a hardware or autoparts store.

Ford f350 drum brake

Don't listen to the last guy. The drum does not just slide off. You have to remove the axle by removing the eight 5/8" bolts and pulling it out. Inside the hub you will find a ratcheting lock nut. Visible will be 4 slots where a special socket fits. You can buy the socket from a parts store or you can just use a 1/4" punch and slowly hammer to slowly thread the nut off. Drivers side is left hand thread while the passenger side is right hand thread. Remove the nut and the outer bearing will fall out (so catch it before it hits the dirt). Then slide the drum off. While you inside there it is a good idea to replace the axle seal. It's about $30 and an easy change.
