To try and get the rear brake drums off first try to knock the drum off with a hammer and hit the center area around the hub area not the studs. by doing this you will be vibrating the drum and it might free itself off or if this does not work then at the back of the drum there is an access hole take the rubber plug out and turn the adjuster to slack off the brakes so you could get the drum off

How do you remove the rear dums on a 2001 Oldsmobile mini van?

with every thing out of the way and you don`t have a torch to warm the drums, take a hammer and hit the drum between the wheel studs hard this should pop the drums loose, what happens is they get rusted/corroded to the hub assembly and need help to get loose.

Rear brake shudder, even with new drums fitted

the shoes may be misadjusted, try jacking it up, and with emergency brake off turn the wheels to see if they freewheel or if they drag-pull the dums off and make sure the shoes are centered on the backing plate, then install the drums again. if they drag, use a screwdriver or star wheel adjusting tool to back the shoes off a little bit.

I want to chang the rear brake ! so how do i get to the brake or what do i need to get the dum off !

Remove the rear wheel. Check the studs to see if it has any retaining rings on them. If they do, pry them off with a small screwdriver.
Now take a hammer and bang the drum to loosen it off the axel flange and pull the drum off.

Air leak in cab

Air leaks are usually difficult to find by yourself... Have someone drive along with you and feel the incoming air, back to it's source. Depending on what & where the leak is, generally it can be fixed with either duct tape or "dum-dum" (a kind of non-hardening compound that can be obtained at any body shop which is also used on water leaks and body noises.)
Good luck
