Pulling the axle is easy because yours are full floting. Just remove
the 6 bolts or so hold the axle flang to hub (the part sticking
through wheel) and the axle is out without even jacking truck up.
Removing the hub to get to wheel seal does not require removing brake
shoes and hardware but it does require removing drum. Once axle shaft
is removed, you use a specail socket to remove large bolts the span
the axle stob the axle shaft passes through and they the hub come off.
Really it in not a hard job and do not let them tell you that it is
and scalp you.Also there is no need to remove other axle if that side
requires no work.
