ahh yes, your first encounter with MoPar's famous Total Contact Brakes! Yes, the manual does specify a special tool you will need to remove the drums. I personally dont know the names of people who sell them, but they are out there. If you are in a pinch, there is more crude method which involves a slide hammer, but i wont go into that since it pretty much destroys your brake drum. Also, do NOT use a gear puller that grabs the rim of your drum....all you will manage to do is break off the lip around the drum and possibly injure yourself. Do yourself a favor and get the proper tool. Jon
