It almost seems impossible to replace brake shoes on a 3/4 ton pickup. How to you get the drum off, if this circle wheel stud thing is keeping it from coming off? How do you get brake drums off of a 3/4 ton?!!!???!!!!

thanks in advance,
Are you talking about little clip like things that are square with a round hole? if so there tinnerman nuts, there used to hold drums on cars at the factory when they have no wheels. Ither the person who did the brakes b4 thought they were required or, your truck has never had the drums apart
