Or, do it the way Ford designed, remove 4 bolts in backing plate, remove drum and hub together. Depends on whether you are replacing the drum, or just hanging shoes

Yep, they always want to take what they think is the easy way...........

You MUST hit the critical torque of the nut when you tighten it back up, simply good and tight will have you changing the bearing in 30 minutes.
