Nothing special, make sure your brakes are adjusted all the way in (backed off). If the shoes are in the normal position, ie (very close to the drum as they should be) and if any ridges or groves exists, the drum can not come off over the shoes. You have to back the shoes off all the way to create a gap then the drum can come over any groves, or ridges. Also check your em. brake make sure it is off. Once you have the shoes backed off, the em. brake off, you might have to smack the drum on the edge with a good sized hammer, not so as to bend it but you are going more for shock, to break any rust away.

99 Honda civic just changed rear drum brakes,

9 out of 10 times when installing new drums, the surface where the shoes make contact, pull the shoes away from the backplate, the finishing of the the drum has a spiral effect (like the lines on a cd) . I usually sand new drums just to get rid of those lines!

Emerg. Brake Drum Removel on E450 .

The park/emerg. brakes should be integrated with the rear brake rotors. To replace them involves removing the calipers and brackets. You should be able to slide the rotors off. You may have to back the park brake shoes off with the shoe adjusters to remove the rotors due to the rust lip that often develops within, but they should slide off once freed. Hope this helps.
