    Default '97 Chevy 3500.. How to remove rear drum??

    I am posting for my husband who is not computer savvy.

    My husband is having a heck of a time trying to remove the driver side rear brake drum from his '97 3500. We cannot seem to find anything online that looks like his drum, so I'm posting a picture hoping someone can help us before he blows it up in frustration!

    Any help is appreciated!
