Your best bet would be to remove the hub nut to get the drum off.
Even though the repair manual says to remove the 4 bolts holding on the axle
spindle, unless you have an impact wrench it is somewhat impossible to
remove the bolts with regular tools due to corrosion. Most repair shops just
remove the hub nut. The hub nut on very tight, it is torqued to about 185lbs
but you can loosen it with a 30 mm socket and a very long bar. The nut is
self locking and can be reused up to 4 times. Hope this helps.
I had the same problem, it is not torqued on, it is rusted on. That is
only half the problem, you are going to have a real hard time getting the
drum off once you get the bolt off.
