take 1 side apart at a time.....that way if you have a problem, you can look at the other side thats still together. When you do take a side apart, aly everything out, the way it came off....dont know how many people tear into drum brakes and just pile the parts up...and then cant figure out what went where or which direction the springs should go.

The tools I have with me.....
long flat blade screw driver...for streaching the springs (removal and install)
pliers .... for removing the retainer locks ( disks with a pin thru them on the shoe )
brake cleaner
rags

be sure to push the shoes in by loosing the bleeder screw (3/8th wrench or scoket) and pushing in the wheel cylinder pistons with the brake assembly installed. Run the adjuster in, and test fit the drum, should beable to spin the drum with a lite drag. Its easier to do this, than having to adjust the adjuster thru the access hole in the backing plate. Put a hose on the bleeder screw into a container, so the brake fluid dosent make a big mess. Be sure to tighten the bleeder back, and bleed the brakes....

You can adjust the shoes both ways from the access hole. To loosen it off you need a second thing screw driver to push the lever out of the way (the thing you hear clicking when you tighten the brakes).
