1964 Impala SS front brake drum removal

Hello,
Just joined the forum as I just purchased a 1964 Impala SS. I am trying to remove the front brake drums. There is a spring that circles the exterior of the drum. Does this need to be removed? Also does the drum slide over the axle housing or do I need to remove the cap, nut and bearings to pull it off.



Thank you

Welcome to the Team!

Spring is there to reduce noise. It is a vibration damper.

The drum slides off once the shoes have been backed off to allw the wear lip on the drum to get past the edge of the shoe.

If you don't have them already, the 61 Shop Manual and the 64 Supplement are must have items. They are available from most places selling restoration parts.
