    ok well the easiest way is this.... first on the drum there are 2 or 3 threaded holes right around the wheel studs that you can tighten a bolt into (i think it's 10mm) and that will pull the drum off. next as far as the shoes i just get the ones from my local napa store, and i get the medium grade ones, and when you get the shoes it's just easier to get a whole new spring pack to (trust me it makes it way easier) and just make sure you put the springs and the auto tensioner back the right way. it pretty straight forward.
