Yes the back is definately easier for me. I've got a knuckle adaptor for the ratchet so I'll give it a go with that if it's a bit awkward.
The drums are full of dust and what happened on the weekend was I washed the car and some water got into the drum and gunked up. The following day the wheel was stuck solid!
Had the RAC out to take the alloy off and tap the drum. It freed itself then.
I've got 2 cans of brake cleaner so I'll give them a good service
