SOURCE: remove rear brake drums
1. After removing the wheel, remove the brake drum. 2. Remove the shoe hold down spring, the automatic adjuster spring and adjuster lever.
3. Spread the shoes and remove the shoe adjuster. 4. Remove the shoe to shoe spring and shoe hold down spring.

loosen emergency brake both sides..open wheel cylinder and let fluid run as you pry gently side to side in between drum adn shoe through backing plate /drum area to collapse the shoes some..... use wd40 or quality rust buster at center of drum /axle area to loosen grip of rust fused metal at hub to drum ..tap tap with hammmer around circumference of drum to dislodge adn loosen shoes from drum and drum from axle..good luck.. be patient work slowly

You should be able to just pull them off! If they are stuck on you may have to get them off by beating on them with a small sledge hammer. Sounds primitive, but thats how its done at the shop. Just hit it straight on the front to break the rust loose. Whatever you do...don't hit the wheel studs. They aren't fun to replace.

No just make sure your emergency cable is off and take a large hammer an hit it around the edge or corner lightly and spin at the same time also try pulling with your other hand as you spin this is a technique all mechanics use its very unlikely that you will have to loosen up the shoes with a brake spoon.REMEMBER THE OUTER ROUNDED EDGE ONLY WHERE ITS THE THICKIST.

jack up one side at a time without the ebrake on as that will engage only the rear brakes remove lugs and have a good hammer handy and tap on the drum until it will pull off
