its pretty simple. jack the rear end up, remove the back wheels, knock the drums off [they usually come off with a little or a lot of pursuading]then once you have both drums off you will see little round plates with spearheads through them. the rounds pieces are slotted to fit over the spearheads when you turn them to line up.once you have those out pop the springs located in various places on the shoes and the shoes should come off in your hands. DO NOT DO THE SECOND SIDE UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE THE FIRST SIDE AS THE SECOND SIDE SIDE WILL BE YOUR REFERRENCE TO REPLACE ALL YOUR BRAKE PARTS FOR THE FIRST SIDE!!!!OLD SCOOL RULES. replace drums adjust the brakes and put your tires back on.most drum brakes are self adjusting these days so dont sweat the adjust brakes part too much. this pretty much applies to most drum[rear] brakes. remember, its the K.I.S.S. rules, always.
