You can watch a YouTube about doing rear brake shoes which are different from rear brake pads which are used on disc brake set ups.

If it's like my 2000 you have to place the clip in the lower holder first, then put the shoes on and put the clip in the shoe holes. The front-facing shoe has to get clipped first, since you'll need use a short pry bar to fit the clip in the back shoe and there's much more clearance for that one.
Once that's done then you can put the hardware on the top, finishing with the spring.

The rear brake shoes use a U clip to hold the shoes together. A simple solution to this change job is to change one side at a time.
Slowly unclip the U clip from the top of the shoe and remove the left shoe and spring. Replace the left shoe and reconnect the U clip, then do the same for the other shoe. Clean, adjust,and grease the self adjuster and you're done. Do the same for the other side of the van. If you take both sides of the clip off you're in for some heavy duty stretching with pliers unless you have the right tool.

Thats quite alot to explain in writing. The best thing you should do is go to any local auto parts store and buy a repair manuel for that car ( haynes or chiltons). They're only twenty bucks and it will walk you through the whole process with illustrations. Plus theirs also instructions on how do just about every repair. I hope this helped you out. Good luck.....MIKE-
