Rear Disc Conversion
Moving on to the rear axle, it's a simple matter to remove the drums, brake shoes, and hardware with the help of a shop manual. Using the opening in the axle flange, remove the four nuts holding the axle endplate in position. If the T-bolt spins you'll have to hold it from the back with a set of Vise-Grips while you remove the nut. With the fasteners out of the way, you can remove the axleshaft from the housing. If it's stubborn you may have to use a slide hammer.
