1999 Dodge RAM 2500 drums won't come off

Hello, I cannot get the rear drums off my 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD. They will not budge the slightest. The tag under the hood says 'DRD 2600# Spicer 6'. The parking brake is off & it's not in gear. Adjusting the star-adjuster did not help in the slightest. Does the axle have to be removed? Is the drum supposed to slip off around the hub/axle? Does the backing plate have to come off? I've been whacking at this thing for an hour to no avail. What's the magic secret? Thanks very much, Charlie

Well, I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD with rear drum brakes and I tried to buy a puller to get them off. Couldn't find one anywhere. I welded one together with some scrap steel and a stearing wheel puller bolted to the top. I was supprised it worked so well. There not easy to beat off. All that is required is sufficient force to move them. Once there loose the rest is easy.

SOURCE: Rear drums will not come off.

If this has the 1 ton style axles; in that the axle is removed by removing 6 or so bolts at the outboard end and the axle slides out, you have to pull the axle and then the internal retainer nut and the drum/hub assembly should slide off the axle.

Make sure you have some silicone for the axle end when you reassemble it.
