I'll bet the "collar" is the 'Wheel Seal'. Try not to abuse the stock ones if possible. Replacements aren't cheap and so long as the stocks look good you can reuse them.

If it's something else you're going to have to post a picture of this oddity.

effing fords

well the collars were junk, I spoke with a Ford Mechanic he said the new drum with out the collars are okay to use, and that the collar is just a nuisance. found out the wheel cylinders didn't get changed out. and that was causing my promblem. well besided the fact its a ford
