    Do you mean that then the drums will turn fine or the axles will turn fine after unbolting them?

    the axles will turn fine once unbolted, but i think it is just rust and crap holding them still. im gonna mount em tomorrow nite and hopefully they will turn ok when i get it all together

    Take a 2x4 and place it on the outside edge of the drum. Bang the piece of wood a few times with a BFH and see if the droms will loosen up. Dont beat it to death just see if you can break the rust up. I have to do this with half the junk yard axles I get.
