        That is all.

        I'm currently missing two lug nuts on one of my rear wheels because the studs are all chewed up and I can't get the drums off to replace them. they're like yours, where there's not a hole to stick a bolt and ugga dugga it in to release the drum.
        I'd rather not spend an afternoon hammering on the drum so what do I do to get it off?

          I had to buy a specific puller tool for the drum brakes in my Škoda, you hook this cast iron disc up to the lugnuts/bolts and there's a threaded rod in the middle you tighten to pull the drum out.

      Just cause you know how to do it doesn't mean you LIKE doing it. If you say otherwise you're a fricking liar.

        Last time I do a drum break.
        Modern brakes are so much easier to work on.

      Some nissans have the bearing inside the drum as well, sentras and versas I believe. Some ford trucks have the lug studs and bearing races pressed into the front rotors. Not too sure about the economy cars that would have rear drums.

        I’m always amused at how many more modern Nissans have drums while my ‘79 model has rear disc brakes. And how mine also has an actual fuel filter while again, modern models don’t. Fukn cost cutting bullshit like this is how the Nissan of today is bogus.

      Fairly sure Renault did/does this too. Hell, VW even put the wheel bearings in the rear fricking brake discs at one point.

      That’s standard on most drum brakes

      This used to be the standard when we had front drum brakes. It became a lot more rare with front wheel drive because most manufacturers went to sealed bearings by that point

    I have a 2002 Suzuki
    It has drum brakes
    If I weld on disk brakes, I may as well replace the whole rear, and if I do that, I may as well replace the whole engine and transmission
    It's body-on-frame, what do I replace the engine and running gear with? All new guts, chassis is pristine, what would you do?

      Manual is fine, auto is fine, BTW, I would like 4WD if at all possible, locking diffs not necessary, but cool

          Honestly, I am inclined to agree. But I can't be arsed to shit out the money to replace my rear drums. One less thing to worry about, and I also engine brake anyway, so my brakes are never under that much strain even at high speeds.

            That's my point. Taking the drums off is the PITA. Inaccessible/rusted adjusters, huge wear ridges on the drums, and hub faces rusted to the drums make them a massive pain to inspect let alone service. I'd rather pay - what? - $30?, $60? more to just have disc brakes from the beginning. Drums suck balls.

            But you also see my point, right? My car isn't a bloatbarge nor is it automatic because I'm not a homosexual. Halfway decent engine braking takes a significant load off my brakes and keeps them lasting longer. Drums just make it so I don't have to worry about them ever, really.

            I see the point but I HATE servicing drums. Even when the drums and linings last - I tried changing the brake fluid at 70k miles on mkre than one previous car but the rusty wheel cylinders said, "No, the bleeders are snapping off, lol." Now I need to remove the drums, linings, and replace the cylinders just for a normal fluid change. Way easier with discs, which are also better in every other way that isn't how long they can be neglected. Rear discs last for a long time too. I haven't seen a concrete number on how much more or less compared to drums.

            Yes, and with discs it's way less time and effort to deal with. No shitty adjusters. No stuck drums. No linings and springs to remove. Just 3 bolts to pull the caliper. It's straight a better design.

          Bench bleeding is a waste of time and an unnecessary annoyance. Just bolt it in and loop some lines back to the top to bleed.

    Mine annoy me because it's rear drums with abs and it gets really funky if they actually try locking up.
    As far as service, I prefer them to front discs, cheaper and last longer. Don't have to take caliper off to change shoes.

    Some pussy isn't strong enough to get the springs on. Drums are simple as hell.

    Sucks getting rusty drums off sometimes but once they're off all the inside shit is simple. Lots better than modern discs and all the anti rattle clips and springs bullshit.
