The drums just get frozen in place. Not a lot I can really suggest here, they are just a PITA to get off. I used a couple of tools from the body shop I used to work in; but you could do the same thing I did and use something like a screwdriver and hammer and tap on the lip near the inside portion of the rotor. Takes a while to get anywhere, definitely a full six-pack kind of job. I almost gave up and changed the fronts and left the rears the way they were.
