Yes pull back the spring that covers the cable and clip it onto the lever. The best way I found to do it is use to pliers and push them apart.one plier on the cable and one on the spring. Watch your fingers!

Brake shoe removel:

Depress and turn the retainers for the hold-down springs and pins to remove them from each shoe. Slide the brake shoe assembly--including the shoes and springs--down so you can disengage the top ends of the shoes from the cylinder and tilt them to lift them past the retaining plate.

Unhook the lower retracting spring from the front brake shoe to disconnect it. Spread the shoes apart at the bottom to remove the adjusting screw, the screw's retracting spring and the adjuster lever. Remove the front brake shoe.

Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.
  • Step 4 Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.
  • Step 5 Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.

    I cant figure out how to assemble the back brake shoes and springs back together


    Maybe to late for this but if you do one side at a time just look at the other side for how they go together. Also the short shoe goes toward the front long toward the back.
    1. Clean and inspect individual brake components.
    2. Lubricate anchor pin an brake show contact pads on support plate with high temperature grease or
    Lubriplate. See Fig. 41 .
    3. Lubricate adjuster screw socket, nut, button, and screw thread surfaces with grease or Lubriplate.
    4. Install the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever.
    5. Install parking brake lever to the secondary shoe and install retaining clip.
    6. Install primary shoe on support plate. Secure shoe with new spring retainers and pin.
    7. Install spring on parking brake strut and engage strut in primary.
    8. Install secondary shoe on support plate. See Fig. 42 . Insert strut in shoe and guide shoe onto anchor pin.
    Temporarily secure shoe with restraining pin.
    9. Install anchor plate and adjuster cable eyelet on support plate anchor pin.
    10. Install cable guide in secondary shoe and position cable in guide.
    CAUTION: Be sure the adjuster screws are installed on the correct brake unit. The adjuster screws are marked
    "L" (left) or "R" (right) for identification
    11. Assemble adjuster screw. See Fig. 43 . Then install adjuster screw between the brake shoes.
    12. Install adjuster lever and spring, and connect adjuster cable to lever.
    13. Install secondary shoe retainers and spring.
    14. Install shoe spring. Connect spring to secondary shoe first, then to primary shoe.
    15. Verify adjuster operation. Pull adjuster cable upward, cable should lift and rotate star wheel. Be sure
    adjuster lever properly engages star wheel teeth.
    16. Adjust brake shoes. See REAR BRAKE SHOES under ADJUSTMENTS.
    17. Install wheel and tire assembly. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS

    How to install rear brakeshoes


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    If you are not thoroughly familiar with the procedures involved in brake replacement, only disassemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other wheel intact as a reference.
    1983-88 Vehicles
    See Figures 1, 2 and 3
    1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle with jackstands.
    2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
    3. Remove the brake drum, as outlined earlier in this section.
    4. Place Brake Cylinder Clamp D81L-1103-B or equivalent, over the ends of the brake cylinder.
    CAUTIONBe careful that the springs do not slip off the tool during removal, as they could cause personal injury.
    1. Remove the shoe-to-anchor springs, using Brake Shoe R and R Spring BT-11, or equivalent, then unhook the cable eye from the anchor pin.
    0900c1528006be0f.jpgFig. 1: Place the brake clamp tool over the ends of the wheel cylinder, then remove the shoe-to-anchor springs using the correct tool
    1. Remove the shoe guide (anchor pin) plate.
    2. Remove the shoe hold-down springs, shoes, adjusting screws, pivot nut, socket and automatic adjustment parts.
    3. Remove the parking brake link, spring and retainer. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake lever.
    4. After removing the secondary brake shoe, disassembly the parking brake lever from the shoe by removing the retaining clip and spring washer.
    0900c1528006be10.jpgFig. 2: View of the drum brake components-1983-88 9-inch brake shown 0900c1528006be11.jpgFig. 3: View of the drum brake components-1983-88 10-inch brake shownTo install:
    1. The brake cable must be connected to the secondary brake shoe before the shoe is installed on the backing plate. To do this, first transfer the parking brake lever from the old secondary shoe to the new one. This is accomplished by spreading the bottom of the horseshoe clip and disengaging the lever. Position the lever on the new secondary shoe and install the spring washer and the horseshoe clip. Close the bottom of the clip after installing it. Grasp the metal tip of the parking brake cable with a pair of pliers. Position a pair of side cutter pliers on the end of the cable coil spring, and using the plier as a fulcrum, pull the coil spring back with the side cutters. Position the cable in the parking brake lever.
    2. Apply a light coating of high temperature grease to the brake shoe contact points on the backing plate. Position the primary brake shoe on the front of the backing plate and install the hold-down spring and washer over the mounting pin. Install the secondary shoe on the rear of the backing plate.
    3. Install the parking brake link between the notch in the primary brake shoe and the notch in the parking brake lever.
    4. Install the automatic adjuster cable loop end on the anchor pin. Make sure the crimped side of the loop faces the backing plate.
    5. Install the return spring in the primary brake shoe and, using the tapered end of the brake spring service tool, slide the top of the spring onto the anchor pin.
    CAUTIONBe careful to make sure that the spring does not slip off the tool during installation, as it could cause injury.
    1. Install the automatic adjuster cable guide in the secondary brake shoe, making sure the flared hole in the cable guide is inside the hole in the brake shoe. Fit the cable into the groove in the top of the cable guide.
    2. Install the secondary shoe return spring through the hole in the cable guide and the brake shoe. Using the brake spring tool, slide the top of the spring onto the anchor pin.
    3. Clean the threads on the adjusting screw and apply a light coating of high temperature grease to the threads. Screw the adjuster closed, then open it 1/2 turn.
    4. Install the adjusting screw between the brake shoes with the star wheel nearest to the secondary shoe. Make sure the star wheel is in a position that is accessible from the adjusting slot in the backing plate.
    5. Install the short hooked end of the automatic adjuster spring in the proper hole in the primary brake shoe.
    6. Connect the hooked end of the automatic adjuster cable and the free end of the automatic adjuster spring in the slot in the top of the automatic adjuster lever.
    7. Pull the automatic adjuster lever (the lever will pull the cable and spring with it) downward and to the left and engage the pivot hook of the lever in the hole in the secondary brake shoe.
    8. Check the entire brake assembly to make sure that everything is installed properly. Make sure that the shoes engage the wheel cylinder properly and are flush on the anchor pin. Make sure that the automatic adjuster cable is flush on the anchor pin and in the slot on the back of the cable guide. Make sure that the adjusting lever rests on the adjusting screw star wheel. Pull upward on the adjusting cable until the adjusting lever is free of the star wheel, then release the cable. The adjusting lever should snap back into place on the adjusting screw star wheel and turn the wheel one tooth.
    9. Expand the brake adjusting screw until the brake drum will just fit over the brake shoes.
    10. Install the brake drum and wheel and tire assembly, then adjust the brakes.
    11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
