Default 2015 f150

Working on 2015 Ford f150 changing brakes. The left rear wheel is super hard to turn even with the pads backed off. It does not have the auto E brake feature. Any ideas anyone.

Rust!!!!!!!! Brake liner came off the shoe and was getting evolved with the drum, the linkage was rusted so it wouldn't move. On my trucks I just remove the parts and cut the cables. But the owner wants it back to factory so new shoes on the way.

The brake cables on my old Scout are rusted solid.

I will have to cut them short and knock the cores into the drum or something. Torches may be involved to get the drums off.

The rear brakes have been frozen for 30 years LOL.
