What year? Maybe I can find something for you online, I don't quite understand "with out braking crompression the front". But I haven't worked on any drums newer than my '88.

Well, it's not your typical drum you just pull off. It's held on with a compression nut. My friend who's a mechanics says you loosen the four bolts in the back holding the drum on. But I can't get those bolts to budge to save my life.

But I'm thinking, all that does is take off the whole drum.

So I'm not really sure
