How hard is it to replace brake shoes?
easy. Get brake spring pliers, some skrewdrivers, and pliers and put it together the way it looked before. Do one side at a time for reference. If its a 14 bolt, do disc brakes, about the same price (maybe a little more) and well worth the extra labor.
Semi floater axle = piece of cake
1. Remove Wheel
2. Remove drum
3. Tear apart
4. Reassemble and done
Full floater is a bigger pain, have to remove axle shafts, remove hubs, then tear down and reassemble, then finally refill gear oil
its easy. Like said, only do one side at a time. The worst thing you can do is have a buddy help and both of you tear into both sides at the sametime. Refering to the other side is the easiest way to put it together.
