You will need to back off the rear brake bands to get them to clear the wear on the drum. The drums should come off with little resistance.

2001chevy truck 1500sereis emergy bracke shoes with disc brackes

Those work pretty much the same as a conventional drum brake. The main difference is that you must first remove your brake caliper and caliper bracket assembly so you can get the rotor off.

Then it is only a matter of removing the return springs and hold-dow clips just as in a regular drum brake. (See Picture)

Our car has been sitting parked for the past 8 months, today we tried to move it and the back brakes are locked, and the back wheels will not move? What could be the cause of this?

The bracke drum / Hand brake cable is stuck . Try to hammer the rear wheel centre and if the brake drum is stuck it wiill be released .
Also the cable of hand brake is stuck . try puling the hand lever of the hand brake up and down many times this may free it .

Right rear wheel has rubbing and grinding noises, as on cast iron

My advise is to adjust the rear brakes. The drum should not move in a side to side fashion. adjusting the brakes will also more than likely take care of that anti lock brake light also. adjust the brakes up to where the rear wheel will spin but you should be able to hear the brake show dragging slightly on the drum.

Look at either a Haynes book or Chilton book, try the library thye usually have the books. Most have the pictures that are basically the same for all rear drum type brakes.
