Question about 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD
According to AutoZone, if you have the full floating axles they have to come off to get the drum off. The semi-floating axles are easier--if you have those you just need to back off the adjuster as I explained. Reach a thin screwdriver into the hole in the back above the axle. It might have a cap over it or a "punch out." You need to turn the star (slightly visible in attached pic) in I think the up direction several turns to get past the lip in the drum. It will resist turning as it ratchets in the opposite direction. You should be able to tell if you're going the right direction as the drum should get looser.
Removal & Installation
Full Floating Axles
To remove the drums from full floating rear axles, the axle shaft will have to be removed. Full-floating rear axles can be identified by a bearing housing that protrudes through the center of the wheel.
