    yep, you have to unbolt the axle shafts and pull the spindle nuts to get the drum/hub assembly off.

    Yep; take off the capitalization of the first letter of every word ... err, take off the hub bolts, pull the shafts out.

    Break out the magic six-sided socket, or use a screwdriver (no no no, use the socket :) Might have to remove a snap ring to unlock the nuts.

    Remove the nuts -- much like the front axle in this regard -- and then the drum, hub, and bearings all come off. They Are Freaking Heavy (ack, no I'm doing it :)

    The joy -- and the PITA -- of full-floating is that the bearings are outboard.
