Can't see any reason for it on a brake drum. They are used on disc brakes sometimes to hold the disc right to the hub although there isn't really any need

Its there for the same reason as when used on a disc, like stated, its not really necessary, but just a precaution.

I can see the pic now that I'm on the computer, as Mike says above it is indeed doing the same as it would on a disc setup as those are sealed type bearings and therefor the drum isn't held in with the hub nut.

There should be no problem to remove it

Lookin good mate,

The colours chosen have matched togeather nicely, some lowering springs and camber adjustment bolts would finish it off nicely in both terms of appearance and handling helping you get the most from your newly fitted 18's
