ok this job is getting more and more annoying, got all the parts and started doing the brakes. I got everything off the drivers sideand found a fluid leak, Looks like it might be a rear diff seal(I sure hope not) The brake had to have been original and at some point the hubs had been submerged it water and it was left sitting like that so all the hardware was rusty, the shoes didnt really look worn still more than 1/16th left on the old shoes. so on to the passenger side, I couldn't get the hub off the passenger side. So I popped the port on the back and tried turning the brake adjuster wheel, no go. After 5 hours of swearing prying and a whole can of 3in1 spray I finally got the hub off and holy **** it was worse than the other side everything was rusted and seized, pads looked brand new. Everything was seized open, I had no rear brakes at all. The wheel adjuster is seized and will not rotate. I have the threaded side out now and the parts are soaking in penetrating oil. Is this a commonly available part? I'll likely just go get a new one if it is. If not lets hope it lets go so I can lube it up until I can get one from a wrecker.
