3) Install new brake lines
4) Install new brake shoes
5) Clean up brake drums
6) Install new brake hoses
7) Install new front drum grease seals
8) Clean, inspect (replace if required), repack inner/outer front wheel bearings
9) Pull rear axles; clean, inspect (replace if required), repack rear axle bearings
10) Install new rear axle inner and outer axle seals
11) Check axle endplay and reset if required
