Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
Hello, there is two ways to remove the drums. First way is to use a hammer and tap the back side of the drum as you rotate it untill it becomes free. Second way is to use a brake spool to back the shoes off, on the back side of the drum is a small opening it may be covered by a piece of rubber. Just pop that out, using the brake spool rotate the star wheel key till the shoes are backed off the drum than it should come right off.

Most rear brake-shoe design take some time to adjust than disc brakes...
If you have a special brake adjustment tool that your local automotive store sells, get this tool and pull out the rubber grommet plug, insert the brake adjustment tool until you 'feel' or hear the sound of 'skipping' on the brake self-adjuster spool inside as you wiggle /adjust the tool inside....(push it inside to get a firm feel that you can 'spin' it)
Try to push the tool downward or upward to check if that'll spin the brake self-adjuster part smaller to allow the brake shoes to 'shrink' which should allow you easy removal of the rear brake drum as you wiggle it out.
Be sure not to breathe in toxic brake dust upon successful brake drum removal.
