If it has disc brakes, remove rear disc brake caliper from rear disc brake adapter and hang out of way with a piece of wire. Remove rear disc brake rotor, wheel hub, rear wheel disc brake shield, and rear brake anti-lock sensor.
If it has drum brakes, remove brake drum and wheel hub. Remove four bolts retaining brake backing plate to the rear wheel spindle. Remove brake backing plate from rear wheel spindle and hang it out of way with a piece of wire.
Remove the suspension arm and bushing to rear wheel spindle bolts, washers and nuts.
Remove rear suspension sway bar nut and washer.
Remove retaining rear wheel spindle to shock absorber and remove rear wheel spindle from vehicle.
It ay have bent thesuspension arms that hold the lower part of the spindle in. I'd get those with the spindle, and have it aligned when you're done.
Check your local library, they might have a Chiltons or Haynes maual to refer to.
