How did you get them loose? Bigger hammer? I know I will have this issue when I get around to replacing the rear brakes. You did remember to release the parking brake, right?

I haven't look at the focus brakes yet, but I had a geo metro and couldn't get the drums off. After beating with a hammer and cracking one, I got it off. Then I realized that there was two threaded holes in the face of the drum. After looking some more, I realized what they were for. Thread a bolt in each one and continue to tighten and they force the drum off the car. Doh!
I know he already got his off, but it's something to look into for future reference.
