make sure the parking break isnt on...make sure the little silver clips on the studs are removed (there's 2 from the factory if its the first time its being pulled) and pull at opposite sides... some times it will take a little bit of force, as in "lightly" tap on it with a mallet or hammer to remove it.... Dont pound it with a bigger hammer if it doesn't come off.. just keep trying....

yeah the drums will come off eventually but you might have to pry and tap with a hammer cuz if the pads inside the drum aren't perfectly aligned they might rub a little bit and make it really hard for removal. also make sure the studs are removed and if that doesn't work you can access a small gear wheel with a flat head that sits inside the drum from the inner side and you can push down this little tab to let it move freely and move the pads closer to one another with it. then you can get it off more easily too

You may have to tap it with a hammer or something, but it should slide right off.
