2004 Tacoma 4x4 Rear Brake job

Glad to find this forum!
Put the truck on stands today to replace the drum brakes and found I also need to replace the rusted backing plates.
Any advice would be appreciated.

(1) Welcome to CT!

(2) If I'm understanding the situation correctly ... You'll need to pull the axle shafts to remove the backing plates.

Here (attached) are files covering the axle shaft components, axle shaft removal, and axle shaft inspection.

It calls for a Special Service Tool (SST) to remove the backing plate from the axle shaft (see the Inspection document).

Thanks for the help. I'll be fighting with the rusty brake drums first.
