New rotors, brake issues

I just put new rotors on my '99 Tacoma (140,000 miles on the originals). Are torque settings very important for the bolts that hold the rotors on? If so, do you guys know what they are?

Anyone know where I can find a tool to remove brake drums? I saw a brake shop use a threaded bolt to back them off, it might have been just a bolt. Anyone know what size, thread specifications?


Thanks for any help,
Donald

the wheels are what hold the rotor true so torque your lug nuts to get accurate pressure on the rotor. you only need bolts to remove drums if you can't pull them off and usually then you can back off the shoes to get them off. i've removed hundreds of drums (worked at a meineke for a couple years) and only needed to use bolts a couple times. a big hammer helps to break them loose...
