Questions & Answers
Questions: I purchased your complete drum brake replacement kit and am now starting on the job. I'm starting with the rear brakes. I got the drums off with some difficulty but they're off. How do I get the hub off? Do I have to use a puller? Please know I am brand new to Jeeps and know nothing about them. Okay, I'm adding to my question. I just watched you video about the hub puller. Here's part two, do I now have to reinstall the brake drum to pull the hub?
Question By: Douglas Edwards on Jun 17 2022 8:40 PM
The hub and drum would come off with a puller HP600. Depending on vehicle then you could press the studs out with a hydraulic press.
