How do you change the back drums and brakes

1) Remove tire/wheel
2)Remove drum, E-Brake must not be set, make sure you use wheel chocks so the car cant roll
If the drum does not easily come off, you will have to use the spoon tool to adjust the brakes through the backside down to release the tension on the star adjuster
3) Remove springs from brake shoes, note how it goes together
4) Remove retaining pins from shoes
5) Remove shoes and e-brake cable actuator from shoe
6) Install is reverse of removal

93 thunderbird e brake stuck rear drum brakes push to release ipush pedal goes down but gear does not release above petal

Probably a stuck shoe - may have to cut the cable to the drum to release or loosen the shoes from the backside.
Could also be a rusty cable between the foot pedal and the drums.

Install a leftside axle

Jack up the vehicle and support it with a jack stand underneath the subframe.Remove the lugnuts, then remove the wheel.Remove the brake caliper and caliper mount, then swing the caliper aside out of your way and suspend it with a bungee cord or similar to keep the weight off of the brake hose so as not to pinch it.Loosen and separate the lower balljoint from the spindle,(sometimes a pickle fork comes in handy for this.) Remove the axle retaining nut. Hit the center of the axle swiftly with a soft sledge to push it thru the hub assembly towards the motor of the car.Pull the spindle towards you to free it from the axle and swing it aside (again with another bungee cord to keep it out of your way) Then crawl underneath the car and you will see where the axle meets with the trans case.Take a prybar between the axle and pry it away from the trans. You will hear a POP when it breaks free, this is normal, it's the c-clip releasing.When you have the axle out it's a good idea to replace that inner axle seal also.That pops out with an axle seal remover (or screwdriver) Installation is the opposite of removal, but don't forget to top off your fluid, you will lose some when you pop the inner axle end out of the trans case. HOPE I COULD HELP!!! Rate me accordingly! Thanks!!!

Was having issue with the slack adjuster stopping mechinism was wondering where i could get a diagram on how it looks when installed. Also any advice on why the rear drum brakes will not release all the...

your 99 dodge came equipped with metric hubs (drums)so the odds of getting the correct shoes are up to you...there is a difference and if the standard shoes do go into the drum it will be rare..very tight..hence the non release..they cant back off...check your hubs to see if they are metric or american..they are usually stamped...not throwing any names but I went to several parts vendors and each set of metric drums would not go over the shoes which I installed.. after markets.. and were all wrong...except O'REILLYS auto parts and They slid right on and gave me room to adjust ..good luck

Cant fit drums over pads

You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.
