Default need rear hub puller

Can anyone give me a part number for a rear brake drum puller for a 1999 2500 suburban. all of the pullers that I have will not reach the distance. Most drum pullers that are bolt on do not work for 8 lug hubs. This suburban uses the 13 in shoes.
Any help will be appreciated.

If the rig has the full floating rear axle you will need to remove the axle shaft/bearings and such and remove the entire assembly.

The lug studs are then driven back through the drum/hub assembly and then you can remove the drum if you need to.

If the drum is not in rough shape just clean the thing up and stuff it back on after you change the shoes.

I don't know if it has the floating rear axle. I will have to check the manual. I had a old dodge post office truck once that you had to pull the axle to do the brakes. This is my gas suburban and after I removed the rim and tire there is a spacer that is about 1 1/2 inches thick that is held on with 8 nuts.

Does this look like what you’re seeing?



If so, it’s what Robyn is saying. My K2500 pickup I just pulled everything apart to put in new pads. The drums were still in good shape. Quite a bit more effort than the K1500 Yukon where you just pull the drum off after removing the wheel.

But there are 8-lug semi-float axles, so if you have one of those you won’t have to pull the axle shaft. I’ve never used a puller to remove a drum, but have had to back the adjuster off if there is a lip worn into the edge of the drum that is keeping it from sliding off over the pads.

Ok that has to be the one where you have to pull the axle. Mine is NOT like that? I will see if I can get a picture of what mine looks like. The drum is a 13 inch 15622390 and this crosses up to a bendix 140619

Light duty 3/4 ton semi float axle.

Yessss.

Look in the brake adjuster hole/slot and visualize the adjuster with the pawl behind it.

Slip a small straight blade screw driver in the hole and shove the pawl back and hold it, then using a brake adjuster spoon rotate the adjuster to back off the adjustment.

You will be rotating the adjuster so it rotates in a direction that would hit the pawl if it were not held back.


Once the adjustment is backed off, use a 3-5 pound hammer and tap the outer edges of the drum to get it to slide off the axle center and lug studs.


Should come right off.


Good luck
