subscription to Alldata, and it recommends removing the rear hubs, as it will *make the job a lot easier.*
Is this really necessary? I changed the shoes on my 2000 Chrysler Cirrus, and it
was not bad having to work around the hub assembly. Are the hubs on the 2003
harder to work around? I have not taken it apart to look.
If I do remove the hubs, the nut holding it on, has to be torqued to 185 ft.
lbs. I am guessing that I would need an extension on my torque wrench to be able
to tighten it that much.
