When removing the old drum-brake system, you can save some work and time by disconnecting the steering arm, brake line, and upper and lower ball joints. This will allow you to remove the entire backing plate, spindle, and brake assembly in one task. You'll eventually need to disassemble the brakes to get the hub out of the drum and steering arm, but the kit will have everything else you'll need. As always, be cautious of the coil springs. Use a spring compressor or put a jack under the lower control arm to prevent the spring from going into unexpected orbit.
