You shouldn't press out those studs. I tried and saw my drum start to distort. I drilled mine out with good results. On changing the rear brakes to a newer self adjusting type......what about keeping the original axel and replacing the present backing plate, shoes, etc. drums, with one from a newer Mopar? The trick is to find one that will fit and bolt onto the axel. Has anyone tried this yet? And thanks to Neil Vedder for the stud replacement tip. John Z
