Question about Cars & Trucks
More information on the rear end and make and model of the vehicle ( e350 is rather general and can range through a multitude of manufacturers )
who makes the rear a diff as some the drums come off the hub and with others the axle comes out then the axle nut is removed and then the drum and hub come off
you may be able to identify which you have by removing the wheels and if there are locking tapered screws in the drum holding it to the hub

Without contaminating everything, try some penetrating oil sprayed carefully on the pins and let it set overnight and then some light tapping with a small hammer to break any rust bond.

hi! the pads will be rutted into the drum, you need to release them first with the cables backed off and the cams wound down, then just tap off the drums!

put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

SOURCE: rear brake pads replacement
Yes they will be. Especially if you have the parking brake applied. The piston must be pressed back into the caliper cylinder completely to install the new pads. So you need a tool to do this. Ask at the autoparts store where you purchased the pads for the correct tool for you vehicle. You need to pry them back a little to slip the pads past the unworn ridge on the rotor, then use the tool to press the piston back into the cylinder all the way.
