I took the rear brakes apart in my 49 CJ-3a and I couldnt get the lugs off of one side, but I managed to get the drum and tire off the axle to replace the wheel cylinder.

I went to order a new drum from JCWhitney and they say that the front and rear drums are interchangable. Does the hub unbolt from the drum somehow? How do I seperate them if they do?

If you're talking about the lug nuts the drivers side has left hand threads (lug nuts unscrew to the right and tighten to the left).
