Unhappy Rear Drum help

I have done front drum and a few rear drums, But like 10 years ago. All of my cars now have disc. Got a new rear. Gonna keep the rear drums.

Is there a step by step guide to replacing all of the hardware?

Shoes,cables,etc..

Thanks
Dave

Just take photos before you start.
Shoe with shorter face goes toward the front of car.
Rear spring attaches first,support perch for front spring goes next,front spring last.
If your parking brake is locked up,remove the cable to prevent dragging brakes.

Remove,clean and lubricate adjuster and assemble last.
Adjust drums to a slight drag as you install them.

for rear brakes replacement you'll need to remove the drums; it varies on make/model. You might need to refer to your service manual for your vehicle.
