Question about 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara
Sometimes if the brakes are old and they wear a groove in the drum it creates a ridge on the outer edge of drum that stops the drum from sliding off shoes. If you can from behind the dust plate release the brake adjuster to allow the brakes to release. Also the drum itself gets rust around the outer inner part on the axle hub. Spray WD 40 on center outside hub area. Use a larger hammer and hit drum on the outer face several times to send shock waves to drum which will break loose then install larger flat pry bar or screwdriver behind drum ( between dust shield and drum) and pull outward as to pry the drum off hub while striking drum on opposite side rear of drum. You will succeed and sometimes it can be a toughy.
